The water at Franklin Park Mall is safe to drink and always was this week despite a boil water advisory issued by the city.
The boil water advisory was issued when a water line near the mall was repaired, but that line did not feed into the mall, city of Toledo spokesman Ignazio Messina said. He said the city must issue an advisory any time a water line is repaired and service is inturrupted, and that it is rare that the advisory affects zero customers.
“The city apologizes for the confusion,” he said, adding officials are reviewing their protocol.
Restaurants at Franklin Park Mall on Monday operated as if they were under a boil advisory, but the water is safe to consume and use for food preparation or dish washing.
