Valparaiso City Services crews have discovered a water main compromise on U.S. 30 which is causing low water pressure and/or service interruption. Crews have been deployed.
Due to the loss of pressure a precautionary boil advisory has been issued for all customers along U.S. Highway 30 from Marsh Street to City View and all customers located south of U.S. Highway 30.

The water microbiology laboratory will conduct the necessary testing to ensure the water passes the required bacteria testing. The city posted the announcement to their Facebook page on Monday at 10:13 p.m. The boil advisory will last approximately 48 hours and may be extended if additional testing is needed.
The city says it is recommended that all cooking and drinking water be brought to a complete boil for five minutes before using. Please continue to boil all cooking and drinking water until the city notifies you that it is no longer necessary.
Valparaiso City Services will advise affected customers once the boil advisory has been lifted.
