Park Hills residents from Science Street west need to boil water

Park Hills has issued a boil order for homes and businesses in the Old Elvins and River Mines areas that is expected to last at least until Thursday, city officials announced this morning.

The order to boil water before using it is necessary because a 12-inch water main broke on Tuesday, creating the possibility of contamination of the water supply.

Last night, the city issued a district-wide order. However, after speaking with the Department of Natural Resources this morning, officials amended the boil order to limit it to properties from Science Street west, said Gloria Valleck, Park Hills Water Department office supervisor.

Cause of the break was not known at press time. The water department repaired the break on Tuesday.

The boil order must remain in effect until two separate water samples sent for testing come back as “clean,” Valleck said.
