Boil water advisory issued in Indiana County

| Friday, April 25, 2014, 7:48 p.m.

Residents in about 2,500 households in western Indiana County were advised on Friday afternoon to boil their water before drinking or cooking with it.

A spokesman for the Indiana Municipal Authority said the alerts, which are expected to remain in effect through the weekend, went out after environmental regulators raised questions about filters at the authority's water filtration plant.

Water Superintendent Tom Cavelier said previous tests revealed no problems with the filters.
