Kentucky American Water extended a precautionary boil water advisory for customers in Owenton for an additional 24-hours on Wednesday, January 8, 2014.

The advisory was initially issued on January 7th due to a water main break.

The company said in a release that repair efforts had been hampered by the extreme cold, along with the discovery of additional breaks and leaks in water lines.

The extended boil water advisory is for all Owenton customers fed from the Owenton water treatment plant.  That includes customers in the Wheatley, Glencoe and New Columbus areas.

Customers who have containers they wish to fill with drinking water may fill them immediately at the company's Kentucky River Station water treatment plant at 16035 U.S. 127 at the Owen/Franklin County line.

Customers who have larger bulk tanks for farm use are also welcome to fill them at that treatment plant.

Kentucky American Water is also having bottled water transported to the Owen County Fairgrounds for pickup by customers.

Once water service is restored, customers are asked to limit their water usage for essential purposes only until the system fully recovers.

While the precautionary boil water advisory is in effect, customers should boil all water to be used for cooking, drinking and ice making for at least three minutes until further notice.
