the boil water advisory effects EKU’s campus. All EKU Dining Services locations will remain open with the exception of Starbucks. Starbucks will reopen when the boil water advisory has been lifted.

The Eastern Progress will have an update when the boil water advisory is lifted for campus.


UPDATE: Sep. 27, 10 a.m.

The boil water advisory for all Richmond Utilities including EKU's campus has been lifted. Richmond Utilities recommends that ice made during the boil water advisory time period be discarded just as a precaution.
