NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WTHR) - Customers of Indiana American Water in Fishers and Noblesville are being encouraged to boil their water before use due to a malfunction at a treatment facility.

The company issued a precautionary boil water advisory for its customers in Noblesville late Monday afternoon. A short time later, the advisory was expanded to Fishers customers, as well.

Customers are advised to boil tap water for about three minutes before drinking or cooking with it.


Tap water can still be used for washing or bathing, the company said.

Noblesville Schools will have an eLearning day Tuesday because of the advisory.

Meanwhile, the Humane Society for Hamilton County is asking for donations of bottled water for pets in their care.

Indiana American Water said there was a loss of pressure at their White River North water treatment facility caused by an equipment malfunction earlier in the day. Repairs have been made to the system and employees are conducting tests on water in the system.

The boil advisory will be in effect for about 24 hours, until around 5 p.m. Tuesday, and customers will be notified when it has been lifted. Customers can call Indiana American Water's customer service line at 1-800-492-8373 or visit IndianaAMWater.com for updates.
