WILLOUGHBY, OH (WOIO) - A water advisory is in effect for some Lake County Residents.

The Lake County Department of Utilities repaired a portion of waterline on Kirtland Road in Willoughby.

Due to this repair a water use advisory has been issued for the following streets:

Figgie Drive
Sherwin Road
Kirtland Road (south of interstate 90) 
West of State Route 306 from I90 to Kirtland Road

The flushing of fire hydrants in the area may cause discolored water. If this occurs, run a cold water faucet until your water clears.

A water use advisory will be in effect until the bacteriological tests confirm the water is safe to consume.

This may take several days. Until that time residents and businesses are advised to take the following extra precautionary measures:

*Water for drinking and cooking purposes should be boiled (at a running boil) for at least a minute.
