BUTLER COUNTY, Ohio (WXIX) - Hamilton officials on Friday evening asked residents not to drink water from their taps until further notice.

A little over an hour later, city officials said water production was back to normal and there is “no concern” about drinking the tap water.

The city experienced “an issue of high pH water in the Lindenwald area,” according to a spokesperson.

The pH levels were higher than normal when tested, though they remained within acceptable levels for drinking water.
