Services will be impacted for some living in Miami Township, Kettering and Moraine, according to the Montgomery County Environmental Services.

The break was originally reported in the area of Lamme Road and Lehigh Place Friday afternoon around 5 p.m.

The county says water service will be shut down Wednesday morning at 5 a.m. to prepare for construction. It is expected to be shut off for the entire day and be back that evening, the county said.

The areas affected include the 4700 and 4600 blocks of Lamme Road, as well as the 2400 block of Rulla Court, the 1900 block of Burnham Lane and 2298 Lehigh Place. They will also be under a boil advisory for at least 24 hours.

The areas under the advisory are in the red area below but those living near those areas in orange could also see discolored water, the county said.

The county says residents have water at this time and water pressure is expected to be back to normal on Friday.

While under a boil advisory, people are asked to boil their water at rolling boil for three minutes and discard any ice that is made Tuesday until the boil advisory is lifted, the county says.

People are encouraged to do laundry and bathe Tuesday and check water for clarity to avoid any discoloring.

One viewer sent News Center 7 a photo over the weekend of brown water from his kitchen faucet.

He told News Center 7 Saturday he had been flushing his water for 20 minutes every hour.

“It was brown at first, then clear with a lot of particles,” he said.
