Boil Advisory

VILLAGE OF HANCOCK (WBNG) -- A water main break has caused a boil water advisory to be in effect for some parts of Hancock.

According to Village Clerk Phyllis Falsetta, the water main break is in front of the McDonalds on West Main St. and traffic has been reduced to one lane to allow crews to space to work on repairing the damage.

The break has caused a boil water advisory for any businesses or residences on West Main St. from Pennsylvania Ave. to Sands Creek Rd. in Hancock.

Falsetta told 12 News the advisory will be in place for a minimum of 3 days.

If a water sample test comes back and shows the water is not clean enough for human consumption, the advisory will be extended.

Stay with 12 News for updates as they come.
