SHARPSVILLE — Borough residents are warned to boil their water until further notice.

Sharpsville Borough Manager Ken Robertson said officials were notified of a leak at the Quarry Way water tower at 7 p.m. Monday, which led to them notifying the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and implementing the boil-water notice.

The leak is believed to affect Sharpsville residents north of Quarry Way, from the Sharon line at Ridge Avenue to Walnut Street and Covert Avenue, and north to the Shenango River, as well as the township of South Pymatuning. Dean Dairy's milk-processing plant in the township was also expected to be affected, Robertson said.

Residents will be notified Tuesday morning if the boil water notice can be lifted after the water has been tested for any contamination throughout the affected areas, Robertson said.
