DAYTON, OHIO (WDTN) – The lift of the boil advisories brought relief to many businesses Friday. They’ve had to change the way they operate since Wednesday night.
Nanyea Restaurant & Coffee Bar in Harrison Township is just one among many area cafes and eateries that fell in the advisory zone.
“It’s very difficult because we have to boil all the water for cooking and washing dishes,” said owner Sofi Kinde.
She says the boil advisory also affected her restaurant’s traditional Ethiopian hand-washing ceremony.
“We do that as a culture. The hand ceremony is more fun, so I think the customers love it. We just keep going as smoothly as we can,” she says.
They have also had to limit their coffee and tea service. The cancellation of the boil advisories Friday afternoon came as a big relief.
“It’s a really big relief because, it’s time consuming,” says Kinde.
“I think the restaurants and all the businesses have too much to lost to not follow orders given, so I think we’re pretty safe, but I guess I’ll find out in a little while here,” said customer Michael Hayden.
