Update: Boil alert has been lifted for Akron water customers in north Hudson

Published:

Twinsburg Township -- Akron Water officials lifted the boil alert affecting about five township and hundreds of Hudson customers late last night.

According to Stephanie York, communications director and assistant law director with the city of Akron, all the tests performed by Akron Water came back clean.

The city of Akron early Feb. 13 reported a water main break in northern Hudson along the main line that travels along Middleton and Darrow roads.

More than 250 customers were affected by the break, mostly in the city of Hudson, according to Twinsburg Township officials.

The only township customers affected by the water main break (served by Akron Water) and boil alert are 5 homes on the north side of Fairway Boulevard, York said.

The remainder of the township is served by Cleveland Water and the Twin Keystone Water District, or individual wells. Cleveland Water and TKWD customers are not affected by the water main break or the boil alert.

A boil alert means that customers should boil water for two minutes before drinking it or using it.

Any questions about the water main break or the alert should be directed to Akron Water Dispatch at 330-375-2420.
