VERMILION — The boil alert for Vermilion was lifted at 8 a.m. today.
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 as safe to consume, said Dina Pierce, spokeswoman for the state EPA.
Mayor Eileen Bulan said the city will continue to monitor the water until today, however. Bulan said the water pressure had been somewhat low Friday, and city employees want to avoid another boil alert.
Provided that water pressure remains above 20 psi, it will be safe to consume today.
The boil alert for the entire city began last Friday after the water experienced a high turbidity. Bulan said the turbidity, or cloudiness, of the water was caused by cracks in the clear water well’s roof, which will need to be replaced.
