Boil water advisory lifted
The Indiana County Municipal Services Authority has lifted a boil water advisory that had been in effect since April 25.
The authority lifted the advisory shortly before 9 p.m. Friday.
“Continued water testing has consistently shown that the water being produced meets all of the water quality standards and is safe to drink,” the authority said in a statement on its website. “We thank all of our customers for their patience and cooperation in this matter.”
The authority had issued the advisory after finding that two filter membranes at its Crooked Creek water treatment plant weren’t performing up to expectations, leading to a slightly increased risk of contamination.
The advisory was issued as a precaution — even though the filters weren’t working as expected, water quality was still meeting regulations, the authority said. The advisory affected about 2,500 customers served by the Crooked Creek plant.
