Middlebourne Boil Order Ends

By Staff | Aug 17, 2016

MIDDLEBOURNE — City Hall said the boil order was lifted Wednesday afternoon and all water quality tests came out good.

“All water tests came back passing state drinking water standards. I appreciate everyone’s cooperation and understanding,” Mayor Charles Delauder said.

A boil order was issued Sunday after a large pipe burst by the Tyler County Senior Center.

When the leak was discovered around 12:30 a.m. Sunday, Delauder said, thousands of gallons of water escaped from the broken pipe before was repaired several hours later at 11 a.m. Much of that water has been slowly replenished.
