Boil advisories and water main breaks still plauging Evansville.

Water and Sewer Utility Director Allen Mounts says there are seven boil advisories today. That's tied for the second highest this month.

Crews are also busy working on a water main break on the Lloyd Expressway just east of St. Joseph Ave.

Mounts says there were 42 active water main breaks yesterday and 200 total in January. There were 315 in all of last year.

Mounts says he doesn't see the breaks subsiding anytime soon because the water in the Ohio River is still very cold. He says they have six contractors working on breaks in addition to crews.
