Boil water advisory in effect for Pleasantville

A boil water advisory is still in effect for people living in one area of Pleasantville.



The advisory is a result of a water main break that turned into a massive sinkhole.



The ground opened up Sunday night on Marble Avenue, near Castleton Street, creating a 10-foot wide hole that is almost six-feet deep.



A section of Marble Avenue is also still closed due to the repairs. They say the roadway should be open Wednesday afternoon.



Officials say an old pipe is to blame for the incident.
