Mother Nature’s frigid grasp loosens in northern Ohio

Below-zero temperatures had caused ice to block the intake valves pulling water from the lake, leading officials in Lorain County to declare a state of emergency and issue water restrictions Wednesday.

The county said Thursday that input rates are almost back to normal for the more than 206,000 residential and commercial customers whose water is provided through the Avon Lake Regional Water plant.

All restrictions were lifted Thursday, but officials said a boil alert would likely be issued for customers in a small area.
