SEBRING, Ohio (WKBN) – The village of Sebring announced a new water distribution schedule Monday, following a late-January revelation that some houses in the city had elevated lead levels in their water.

All Sebring water customers are eligible to receive free bottled water, unless your residence or business has been tested as having lead-free water.

There is a limited supply of bottle water at the distribution center at the Sebring Community Center, and the Village of Sebring wants to make sure all those who need water are receiving it.

Each qualifying person in the household will receive the equivalent of one gallon, per person, per day.  No consumer will receive a supply exceeding six days per distribution.

All residents and businesses receiving bottled water must have their residence or businesses tested, or shall be disqualified from receiving free water.

Criteria to receive water:

  • Current resident of impacted area (Sebring Water Customer, must show proof)
  • Current businesses of impacted area (Sebring Water Customer, must show proof)
  • Households and businesses that test OK on water quality will become ineligible.
