Hidden Valley residents no longer have to worry about their drinking water.


The Valley Rural Utility Company announced Thursday it is lifting the water boiling advisory that has been in place this week. A conservation order that was enacted has also been rescinded.


The boiling advisory was enacted following a main break and pump station failure which nearly drained the utility company’s water tower.

(Hidden Valley, Ind.) – Hidden Valley Lake residents are being warned to conserve water and observe a boil water advisory.


The Valley Rural Utility Company says there was a water main break combined with a failure at the pump station on Bellemeade Drive Sunday. Nearly all the water in the utility’s water tower was drained as a result.


“Please use only water needed for personal use. Do not water your lawns or wash your vehicle,” the utility company warned.


The boil advisory and conservation order will last through Tuesday.
