Madison, OH - Following this week's storm, the Madison Local School District has addressed the issue of possibly compromised water being supplied to each of its buildings.
In response to a statement from the Lake County Department of Utilities calling for a 24-hour Boil Alert, drinking fountains in every building have been either turned off or covered with plastic and tape to prevent students from being tempted to take a sip.
To help quench student thirst during the fountain ban, the District delivered bottled water to each of the buildings along with a supply of paper cups this morning.
Water stations have been set up in nurses' offices or other locations in the schools so students can have a drink.
The District expects there to probably be an all day water ban on drinking fountains, as test results from water samples won't be released until at least 3PM today.
