WOLCOTTVILLE, Ind. (WANE) – The boil-water order in the town of Wolcottville has been lifted.

Wolcottville Clerk-Treasurer June Brown said Sunday that a water pump malfunctioned which caused pressure to drop below a safe operating level. The loss of pressure spurred the Boil Water Order.

Brown said the pump has since been repaired, but a mandatory 48 hours must pass for testing of the water to ensure it is safe to consume.

Residents in Wolcottville were told not drink any water or use it for cooking without first boiling the water. Wolcottville firefighters were going door-to-door notifying residents of the advisory.

That order was lifted just before 1 p.m. Wednesday.

Wolcottville, which straddles the LaGrange and Noble County lines, has a population of approximately 1,000 people.
