Day 5 of Wellsboro Water Advisory

Day 5 of Wellsboro Water Advisory

WELLSOBORO (WENY)--- Wellsboro residents are under a water advisory for the fith day in a row.

The DEC and the Borough are warning residents not to drink the water without boiling it first.

Make sure to bring all water to a boil for at least one minute before drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes or preparing food.

Boiling the water kills the bacteria and other organisms that could be found in the water.

The Borough has been experiencing reduced filter capacity on their slow sand filters.
