Large Main Water Break Generates Boil Warning for East Side of Cleveland.
RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Ohio – Communities along Cleveland’s east side are being affected by a break in the water main in Richmond Heights.
The breakout occurred around 3:30 a.m. Tuesday on Highland Rd.
The FOX 8 crews watched the water flood the road and into the yards.
Many people in the area ran out of water.
Others were left with very low water pressure.
Cleveland Water says FOX 8 crews are working to control water flow and isolate a rupture in a 54 ”water main.
They say that once the water flow is controlled, the water pressure should return to normal.
The breakout has triggered a boil advisory for eastern side communities that is expected to last through Wednesday.
Cleveland Water issued a boil advisory around 8:45 a.m. Tuesday for the following:
- Highland Heights
- Richmond Heights
- Southern Euclid
- Mayfield Heights
- College heights
- Door mills
They recommend boiling water before drinking it or using bottled water.
