TUSCOLA - A broken water main in Tuscola has been fixed, but the city remains under a boil order until further notice.

The city reported the boil order early Sunday afternoon. Now that it has been repaired, tests will have to determine when the water is safe to drink. That is expected early Monday, according to the city.

Until then, the boil order remains in effect.

Sorry, News-Gazette.  This is an unacceptable story.  To announce an event of community significance, only to direct readers to another service (Twitter) is to abdicate your responsibility as a news source.  YOU are supposed to be reporting on this, and telling the details, not merely saying "go read all about it elsewhere".  Really sad.  Really.

Good of the News-Gazette to "update" the story, after the water main has been fixed.  I hope they continue to add "updates" when the boil order is lifted.  I note that they have rephrased their advice on following the story on twitter as well.

The news gazette wasn't directing the community to " read all about it elsewhere." They were simply letting us, the community, know that we can follow tuscola on Twitter. Perhaps to keep a better eye on the boil order than the NG can Allow us to. Im sure Tuscolas Twitter Will tell us the boil order has been lifted sooner than the NG Will. Just saying......
