VERMILION – The boil alert for Vermilion will be lifted at 8 a.m. Saturday provided that everything goes according to plan.
The city of Vermilion is hooked up to emergency water reserves and, after a test of the water required by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, the water came back safe to consume, said Dina Pierce, spokeswoman for the OEPA.
Mayor Eileen Bulan said the city will continue to monitor the water until Saturday, however. Bulan said the water pressure had been somewhat low today, and city employees want to avoid another boil alert situation.
Provided that the water pressure remains above 20 psi, it will be safe to consume today.
