A local community is under a boil advisory for the next few days. The Portersville Water Department, which is located between New Lexington and McConnelsville, announced that all of its customers must boil their water before using it. The spokesman says the water should be allowed to boil for one minute. The problem stems from a water tower leak which has been fixed. Officials say now the tank must refill. The boil advisory remains in effect until further notice, which means about two days.
