STOW, Ohio (WJW) — The city of Stow issued a boil advisory for all residents following a “catastrophic” water main break Saturday.

Monday, that advisory was lifted.

In a press release, the city said, “Water testing completed over the past 24 hours has confirmed the drinking water is safe.  EPA regulations require the City to perform testing over a 24 hour period to ensure that the drinking water is safe before a precautionary boil water advisory can be lifted. Customers are no longer required to boil their drinking water or take any special precautions. Water is safe to consume and can be used normally.”

The exact area of the water main break was not reported, but city officials said repairs are underway.
