Cortland remains under boil advisory

CORTLAND, Ohio — The city of Cortland remains under a boil advisory Monday after a waterline was broken Friday.

According to the secretary for the mayor of Cortland, the advisory will be in place until at least Tuesday, as it takes 24 hours for the results of bacterial tests to come back.

A water line along Russell Avenue broke Friday.

Crews repaired the line but not before the break emptied the city’s water tank.

There is no evidence of contamination, but the EPA mandates a boil advisory when pressure falls below 20 pounds per square inch.

Residents are urged to boil water that is going to be consumed for three minutes.
