RITTMAN, Oh - Rittman residents are being told to boil their water for the next 48 hours, because of a water main break.

The City is advising all residents from Second Street and East of Second Street to boil water as a precaution.

City officials are testing the water right now, but results of those samples are not expected back until Monday afternoon.

On the Rittman police department facebook page, residents are being told to boil drinking and cooking water for one minute. Water for all other uses is safe.
