Whiteland issues boil order for some areas after water main break, school dismissals

Town of Whiteland without water due to main break

WHITELAND, Ind. (WISH) — Students at Whiteland Community High School and Whiteland Elementary School will be dismissed early on Thursday due to a water main break.

Students will be released at 10:30 a.m., and buses will be ready to pick them up and take them home for the day. Car riders and car drivers can also leave at that time, Clark-Pleasant Community Schools says.

Both schools will be on e-learning for the remainder of the day.

Just after 9 a.m., a contractor working in the Briar Creek subdivision hit a water main, Whiteland town officials said on Facebook.

Whiteland residents may experience low or no water pressure until the line has been repaired.

Shortly after noon Thursday, a boil water advisory was issued for these neighborhoods: Briar Creek, Brunnemer Ridge, Millstone, and Park Forest.
