SIX MILE RUN, Pa. (AP) - Some 120 homes, with about 300 residents, were still boiling their drinking water more than three weeks after heavy snow caused the roof of the local water company plant to collapse in southwestern Pennsylvania.

WJAC-TV (https://bit.ly/1cgPKN2 ) reports the affected homes are in Six Mile Run and Coaldale, two tiny villages in Bedford County.

The Six Mile Run Water Company is working to fix the problems associated with the collapse Feb. 13, but say a water filter and tanks must still be cleaned. Also, the damage has kept crews from determining whether pipes at the plant might still be frozen.

In the meantime, the company has been trucking in drinking water.

Six Mile Run Fire Chief Tim Hinish says, “I think the water company is doing a good job at trying to make a bid situation better for us.”
