(Aurora, Ind.) – Customers of Aurora Utilities are being warned that there is a boil water advisory.
The advisory was issued by the utility at around 7:00 a.m. Friday in consultation with the Indiana Department of Environmental management, says Aurora Utilities superintendent Randy Turner.
The boil water advisory is necessary because of a failed E-coli test at the company’s wells.
“Customers, especially anyone with a compromised immune system, infants, or elderly, are advised to boil water for one minute before using. This precaution is being recommended for safety, while the problem is being corrected,” Turner says.
The advisory remains in effect until further notice.
