Precautionary Boil Water Advisory Lifted for Boston Township and Cuyahoga Falls


Advisory was previously impacting approximately 20 addresses

City of Akron Press Release
From the desk of City of Akron Water
Published: 09-12-2023

Akron, Ohio, September 12, 2023 — 11:15 AM — The City of Akron Water Supply Bureau has lifted the precautionary boil water advisory for customers in Boston Township and Cuyahoga Falls located on Oak Hill Road, Major Road, Everett Road, and Bolanz Road including 4683 Riverview Road, 4563 Riverview Road and 4451 Akron Peninsula Road.

On Sunday morning, the City of Akron issued a precautionary boil advisory because of depressurization related to a water main break on Weathervane Lane followed by an additional water main break on Akron Peninsula Road.  Both water mains have been repaired and pressures have been completely restored to the affected areas.

Water testing has been completed over the past 24 hours confirming the drinking water is safe. EPA regulations require the City to perform testing to ensure that the drinking water is safe before a precautionary boil water advisory can be lifted. At this time, Akron Water customers are no longer required to boil their drinking water or take any special precautions. Water is safe to consume and can be used normally.

Please be aware you may experience periodic discoloration or cloudiness of water for the next day or two. Discoloration is faint yellow or brown in color, while cloudiness can have the appearance of weak milk. Discoloration results from drinking water scouring the inside of water mains due to the main break. If this should happen, open every cold water faucet and bath/shower fixture in your home at the same time and flush for five minutes until clear. Cloudiness is the result of dissolved air and will eventually clear itself out. Neither discoloration or cloudiness are reasons to be concerned about the safety of the water over the next couple of days.

Questions should be directed to Akron Water Distribution Dispatch at (330) 375-2420.
