Boil Advisory: Village of McClure and District Customers in Eastern Henry County

Effective immediately through Friday, February 12 at noon, The Northwestern Water and Sewer District (The District) has issued a boil advisory for the Village of McClure, and residents on CR N, from CR 7 to SR 65, and all District customers on SR 65 in Henry County.

Update February 11, 10 a.m.

Water service to The WaterShed in McClure (2926 US 6) is now restored.  The District is offering free water for residents impacted by the boil advisory at the McClure and 19963 Otsego Pike WaterShed locations through the weekend.

This boil advisory is necessary due to a waterline break caused by cold weather.   The leak occurred on CR P at SR 65 at approximately midnight, Wednesday, February 10.  While water service has been restored, a boil advisory has been issued for these customers as a precaution.  The boil advisory impacts approximately 400 District customers in eastern Henry County.

What should you do if a boil advisory is issued?

  • Do not consume your water without boiling it first.
  • Use boiled or bottled water for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, and food preparation until further notice.
  • Bring water to a vigorous, rolling boil and then boil for two minutes, and don’t forget to cool the water before consuming it.
  • Instead of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source.
