Update – Officials from the Town of Milan have stated that the Boil Water Advisory will continue for at least another 48 hours for residents and businesses in Milan.  A leak was detected early Thursday that has caused additional repairs to be required.


Original story – Feb. 9, 2021 -The town of Milan is under a Boil Water Advisory until further notice.  The advisory is due to a water main break at the intersection of State Route 350 and State Route 101.
