SUGARCREEK, Ohio (WDTN) - A water advisory in Greene County is prompting the closure of five restaurants.
A water boil advisory was issued Wednesday afternoon for the Sugarcreek Plaza on Wilmington Pike near Interstate 675.
Chipotle, Burger King, Noble Roman's, QQ Hibachi and the Shell station will all remain closed until the boil advisory is lifted.
The Greene County Combined Health District says a water main break in Sugarcreek Township prompted the advisory.
The Ohio EPA recommends advisories any time there is a loss of water pressure.
The GCCHD says, "Any operation that prepares, cooks or cleans foods are to follow proper guidelines to ensure the health and safety of the public If a business cannot arrange to have potable (safe) water to cook, clean, serve and wash hands, the
business must close until the proper safeguards can be put into place."
The boil advisory will remain in effect until samples indicate the water is safe to consume.
