VERSAILLES, Ohio (WDTN) – The Village of Versailles is under a Boil Water Advisory for at least 24 hours as of 10:05 am on Sunday, October 24.

Water pressure began to drop, and personnel were dispatched to search for a water main break Sunday morning, according to the village. They located a broken water main on E. Water Street between East Street and Williamson Street.

The Village of Versailles said the break was on a 10” water main, which quickly drained both water towers as well as the water plant clear well.

The village said it takes hours to refill both of the 500,000-gallon water towers even with the water plant treating and pumping as much water as possible.
