The city of Gallipolis has been without water since June 2.

Crews have confirmed the discovery of the source of a leak that led to the outage and are in the process of making repairs.

City officials are telling businesses to make preparations to reopen, as soon as the water is deemed safe.

City leaders continue to ask customers to conserve until the reservoir has reached the necessary level for full use, which should happen in the next few days.

The water distribution station for drinking water will be open from 3 to 7 p.m. each day at the Public Use Area below the city park until the boil advisory is lifted.

Those within the city that have water remain under a boil advisory, but it could be lifted Tuesday night. Water samples were taken Monday night and if the results come back good, the city will lift the advisory.

If there are any negative results, the system must be retested and it will take another 24 hours for results.
