Fort Wayne Boil Advisory Lifted

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA 21) — After parts of Fort Wayne were under a precautionary boil advisory for a little more than 24 hours, city officials say the advisory has been lifted.

City Utilities officials, along with the Indiana Department of Environmental Management, say tests on drinking water early Saturday morning are showing no contamination.

The advisory was put into place after the Three Rivers Water Filtration Plant temporarily lost power Thursday night after a car crashed into a utility pole.

The plant’s pumping system continued to work correctly, but the system’s pressure did drop. Because of that, officials say they want to be cautious and issued the advisory.

The map below shows the parts of town that were affected.
