The Village of Lima public water supply and the Town of Lima north of Rexon Street was determined unsafe for use without boiling after a water main break caused low water pressure on July 21, the Department of Health said that at about 6:30 a.m. on July 21, 2017 the Village of Lima water system lost pressure due to a leak in a water line, causing pressure loss in the water main and that when water mains lose pressure it increases the chance that untreated water and harmful microbes can enter the water.
