STRONGSVILLE, Ohio — A Boil Advisory was in effect for parts of several communities due to a water main break on Drake Road near Saratoga Trail in Strongsville.

The advisory was lifted Thursday morning after water samples from 40 locations in the advisory area showed no pathogens and that the water is safe to drink.

Customers may experience cloudy water over the next few days, caused by extra air in the distribution system and plumbing, Cleveland Water officials said. The water is safe to drink.

"Flushing plumbing by running all cold water faucets, including tubs and showers, at the same time for 5 minutes may help clear the cloudiness," states a release from Cleveland Water.

According to officials, the advisory was in effect for residents in Strongsville, Brunswick and North Royalton south of Drake Road.

Additionally, the Brunswick City School District was closed Wednesday, "out of an abundance of caution and for sanitary reasons."

The district will reopen on Thursday at all locations.
