Cut water line disrupts service in Brown County

A cut water main has led to some Southwestern Bartholomew Water Corp. customers in Brown County losing service. Officials say that a contractor accidentally cut the line at about 9 a.m. Monday.

Affected customers are on West State Road 46 in the Stoney Lonesome area. Some customers on Georgetown Road, Baker Hollow Road and in the Bethany area are also impacted.

A Boil Water Advisory will be in effect for these customers once service is restored. The advisory is in effect until 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 9th. Customers should bring water to a full boil for five minutes before consumption or use in cooking and food preparation.
