Staff report
Glasgow Daily Times


A water line leak that caused a temporary water shutdown and boil water advisory for a large chunk of Glasgow and surrounding areas Sunday has been repaired, but the advisory is still in effect until lab results can confirm that the water coming through the pipes is safe to consume.

This advisory includes customers slong the Ky. 90 West/Happy Valley Road corridor and everything south and west of this area from Roseville to Austin.

A second, unrelated leak on Columbia Avenue caused water to be shut off from about 9 to 11:30 a.m. Monday, said Glasgow Water Co. assistant manager Billy Carver. The area impacted by the 6-inch water line break was already included in the advisory from Sunday, but it will have a separate advisory issued once the larger one ends. The impacted area was along Columbia Avenue., from Davis Street to New Salem Road, and includes the cross streets of Davis Street, Shelley Drive, Marion Drive, Bale Terrace, Reed Avenue and part of Grand Avenue.
