Cortland boil advisory lifted

CORTLAND, Ohio — The city of Cortland has lifted its boil advisory¬†after a waterline was broken Friday.

According to the secretary for the mayor of Cortland, the city lifted the advisory as of 12:30 p.m.

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 for three minutes if it is going to be consumed.
