The city of Toledo is repairing the water system. That means certain streets in Toledo are under a water boil advisory until Thanksgiving (11/22/18).

Effective immediately residents on Wyman St., South Ave., and Mercer St. in Toledo will need to bring all water for personal consumption to a boil. The city recommends boiling the water for at least three minutes and letting it cool before use.

This boiled water should be used for drinking, brushing your teeth, and all food preparation including washing dishes.

Once the service is turned back on after the repairs are complete, the water will need to be tested for several days before it will be determined safe.

The Toledo Animal Rescue is among those impacted by this boil advisory. The organization in on the 600 block of Wyman and is asking for gallon jugs of water to be donated so volunteers can keep animals hydrated. The rescue posted the call for donations on its Facebook page Sunday night.

The city says if you have any questions to call Engage Toledo at 419-936-2020.
