Officials in Delaware issued a boil water advisory for areas north of Wilmington Wednesday over possible contamination caused by a water main break in Bellevue.
Officials worked all day Wednesday to repair the main and pressue was restored by 3:30 p.m., but the boil water advisory remained in effect, according to the SUEZ Water Delaware facebook page.
Officials advised water used in the affected areas to bring all water to a rolling boil, let it boil for a full minute then cool before using, or to use bottled water. The same was suggested for any water used to wash dishes.
Affected communities were as follows:
OLD GATE LANE
TOP OF THE HILL APTS
