BRUNSWICK, Ohio (WJW) — Cleveland Water issued a boil advisory for all residents in the Brunswick area after they say the water could contain “disease-causing organisms.”
Following two water main breaks, the utility company sent out a warning to all of its affected customers south of Drake Road in Brunswick. Cleveland Water also clarified the boil advisory applies to some in Strongsville and North Royalton.
The Brunswick City Schools have now announced classes are canceled Wednesday due to the water issue.
“Out of an abundance of caution and for sanitary reasons, the Brunswick City School District and the Board of Education Offices will be closed tomorrow,” the school posted in part on their Facebook page.

The company said they are working to fix the water supply but do not anticipate lifting the advisory until Wednesday and possibly as late as Thursday morning.
Those in the affected area are either asked to boil their tap water before drinking or use bottled water.
“Cleveland Water has no evidence at this time that the water system is contaminated,” the company said in a statement. “The possibility, however, does exist that the water system is contaminated and is issuing this advisory as a precaution.”
Anyone who may be experiencing symptoms such as nausea, vomiting or stomach aches should seek medical attention.
