Residents are still urged to conserve water


Release Date:  Thursday, May 30, 2019

 

The boil advisory has been lifted for the following areas:

  • City of Dayton low service area,
  • Montgomery County southern system,
  • and portions of Greene County (the Clyo and Swigart pressure zones).

Water customers are asked to enter their service address into the search field of the map at www.daytonohio.gov/boiladvisory to display the boil advisory status for the address.

A non-interactive map showing boundary areas is available here

 

Montgomery County estimates that approximately 136,000 people are no longer on a boil advisory in their.

 

The decision to lift the advisory in these limited areas was made collaboratively by the City of Dayton, Montgomery County, Greene County, and the Ohio EPA. An estimated time for complete water system restoration or lifting the boil advisory in remaining areas is not available. 

While the boil advisory is lifted in portions of the system, we ask that everyone continue to conserve water, as some areas are still recovering and under a boil advisory. Please limit water usage to essential needs only.
