Currently crews are working to turn back on 20 water line valves, then the City’s water plant can be restarted to make sure the repair holds. If all goes well, it is estimated that water service will be restored between 3:00AM and 4:00AM. This water outage affecting affect all Nelsonville water customers including the Village of Buchtel. A boil order is in effect until further notice for all Nelsonville water customers, unless notified otherwise.
