Boil-water advisory canceled for Granville, Franklin counties

Posted August 15, 2013

— A boil-water advisory issued Tuesday for parts of Granville and Franklin counties was canceled Thursday.

Franklin County Public Utilities had issued the warning for customers in areas of Holden, Jackson and Sid Mitchell roads after a contractor working on a new bridge struck a water main. The break caused a pressure loss, increasing the possibility of bacterial contamination.

Testing of water samples showed no evidence of bacteria, officials said, so the advisory was rescinded.
