MIAMISBURG — UPDATE @ 8:30 a.m. (Feb. 11): A Boil Water Advisory for parts of Miamisburg that was issued Friday is now lifted, according to officials.
UPDATE @ 3:46 p.m. (Feb. 10): A Boil Advisory issued on Friday for parts of Miamisburg is still in effect, according to officials.
Per a release, the advisory is expected to remain in effect until at least noon on Sunday.
The Public Works Hotline for Miamisburg informs affected residents that it is safe to shower and do laundry, but they should boil drinking water for two minutes.
We will continue to monitor when the advisory is lifted.
UPDATE @ 2:10 p.m.
A broken valve is believed to be the source of water issues in Miamisburg Friday, according to Gary Giles, Public Information Officer for the City of Miamisburg.
“At this time, it is believed that a broken valve has caused an interruption in the distribution of drinking water. Repairs are underway,” Giles said in an email Friday.
Crews hope to have the repairs completed and water service restored to all by tonight.
A boil advisory has been issued for an estimated 1,000 people in effect until further notice, according to Giles.
The city will also be distributing free bottled water from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., or while supplies last, at the Miamisburg Community Center at 305 E. Central Ave.
UPDATE @ noon:
Miamisburg public works personnel are working near the Great Miami River in the area of the city’s well fields, but as noon approached a location of the problem had not been determined, said Gary Giles, Miamisburg Public Information Officer.
“I can’t pinpoint it yet. I don’t have the information where we can say who’s affected and who isn’t,” he said.
However, city councilwoman Sarah Clark wrote in a Facebook post on a Miamisburg community group page that the issue is due to a broken valve.
“There was a broken valve at the wellfield, water has been shut off at the source for a large portion of residents, unfortunately water will remain off the majority of the day,” Clark wrote in the post.
The water service problems includes the Miamisburg Civic Center, where city workers were fielding a “steady” amount of calls this morning from impacted customers.
Giles said the city regrets the issue and is working to resolve the problem.
Three elementary schools in Miamisburg will be forced to dismiss early Friday due to water issues reported in the city, according to district Director of Business Services Scott Gilbert.
The city posted on Facebook around 10 a.m. that multiple residents and businesses were reporting a lack of water pressure or no water service this morning.
Crews were still working to identify the source of the problem and a boil advisory would likely be issued once the source was identified.
Bear, Kinder, and Mark Twain elementary schools will be releasing at 11 a.m., Gilbert said. There will also be no afternoon kindergarten at any Miamisburg school, according to the district.
Students who are not picked up by parents, unable to be dropped off at a designated place, or cannot be released at that time will be transported to Medlar View Elementary. Parents may go to Medlar View to pick up their students or we will transport them home at the end of the day.
All PM kindergarten in the district is cancelled for today.
City officials said the northwest and downtown areas of the city have reported issues, however stressed the issues may not be limited to those areas.

HOUSTON, TEXAS — A 13-year-old boy was arrested after leading Houston deputies on a high-speed chase that lasted more than 20 miles in a stolen vehicle.
It was not until the teenager crashed the vehicle that officials discovered he was only in the sixth grade, Houston-based television station KTRK reports.
The chase began after the teen was spotted going 60 mph in a 35 mph zone. Refusing to stop, he jumped on and off several Houston highways reaching speeds up to 100 miles per hour. He eventually made his way downtown, where he crashed.
The chase took a turn when a pursuing deputy crashed into another vehicle. The deputy and driver of the other vehicle were taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The 13-year-old driver, who was not cooperative with detectives in telling them where he got the stolen car, was arrested and faces felony charges.
His name was not released because he is a juvenile.

— An Air Pollution Advisory is in effect today for Butler, Clark, Greene, Miami, Montgomery and Warren counties for smog.
With temperatures expected in the upper 80s with abundant sunshine and light southerly winds, conditions will be conducive for the formation of ground-level ozone, or smog, and may lead to elevated air pollution levels, according to the Regional Air Pollution Control Agency.
Children, the elderly and people with respiratory diseases should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion. Symptoms such as coughing, shortness of breath, or unusual fatigue may indicate a serious problem. Residents should contact their health care provider if any of these symptoms occur. The general public is not likely to be affected, according to the agency.
To reduce smog, particularly on Air Pollution Advisory days:
