Several Duquesne dining locations closed or limited their menu options Wednesday due to a boil water advisory put out by the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority (PWSA) Tuesday afternoon, affecting more than 100,000 Pittsburgh residents, including those on the Bluff.

Options Food Court and the Starbucks in the Student Union were closed as of noon on Wednesday, while the Barnes and Noble Cafe on Forbes Avenue took its cafe drinks and soups temporarily off the menu. According to university spokeswoman Jill Greenwood, the Hogan Dining Center in Towers and The Incline in the Student Union will remain open. Greenwood also noted that bottled water has been provided to students in residence halls.

According to a statement issued by the PWSA, the organization will conduct water tests every four hours until the advisory can be lifted. Stay with The Duke for more information.
