Brazil residents are under a boil advisory.
On Monday afternoon, a break in a 4-inch water line occurred in front of Brazil City Hall, along National Avenue.
Since it has been deemed an emergency situation, all water services have been shutdown, but are anticipated to be restored within the next few hours.
Water Superintendent Jake Raubuch told The Brazil Times the City Water Department has clamped a service line which also became disconnected, but the boil advisory was necessary.
"We are going to isolate the elevated tank that is located on Vandalia Street," Raubuch said. "When we do that, the water pressure will dip below 20 psi and whenever that happens we have to issue the advisory."
He added samples of the water will have to be taken Tuesday and Wednesday to ensure no contamination has occurred, and he would not know if the advisory would be lifted until possibly Thursday.
Under any boil advisory, it is recommended to boil water for several minutes, prior to consumption or use, to eliminate potential bacteria or contamination that may have gotten into the water.
