MT. VERNON, Ind. (WEHT) – UPDATE: As of 11:50 a.m. on May 26, the boil water advisory has been lifted.

A boil advisory has been issued in Posey County.

On May 24 a boil order advisory was issued for Mount Vernon. Chuck Gray, the water superintendent, says there was a problem with the chlorine injection system and as a result the water utility office couldn’t add adequate chlorine to the drinking water for a short period of time.

The issue has been resolved at this time, but Gray is declaring a city-wide boil order that will last at least the next 72 hours. The Mount Vernon Water Utility Office apologizes for any inconvenience.
