Hot water

    Aqua Pennsylvania has issued a boil alert for residents in parts of Chester County. Those in West Vincent, Upper Uwchlan and parts of East Brandywine township have been advised to boil their water before cooking with, drinking or brushing their teeth with water, the Phoenix reports.

    The advisory is in place due to a failure with the company’s disinfecting equipment. Aqua is currently testing the water.
