UPDATE: Steubenville Water Outage

Ohio Headlines

It’s day six and most residents in Downtown Steubenville finally have their water back.

But officials said the problem is far from over.

Steubenville Utility Director Chuck Murphy confirmed they’re now concerned with the pressure of water. 

As of last night, the city’s 300,000 gallon reservoir only had about 6 inches in it.

Officials believe the level sensor must be wrong, so they’re conducting a pressure test at the Public Works Building.

If you still need water, there are water buffalo stations set up at the following locations:

-The Urban Mission at 311 N. 6th Street.

-Steel Valley Transit at the corner of 6th and Adams streets

-The JFK building at 815 6th Avenue.

Customers with their water back on are under a 48-hour boil advisory.
