Water warning for some Armstrong communities lifted

The boil-water advisory has been lifted in all areas impacted by water restrictions in Kittanning and Applewold boroughs and areas of Manor and Rayburn townships.

Gary Lobaugh, spokesman for Pennsylvania American Water, said Sunday that customers no longer have to boil water and all water restrictions have been discontinued.

Samples collected Friday and Saturday showed acceptable bacteria levels, and the state Department of Environmental Protection authorized lifting the advisory.

A loss in water pressure prompted the advisory. Friday's water emergency forced cancellation of Light Up Night in downtown Kittanning.

Ray Voller, president of Downtown Kittanning Inc., said Light Up Night won't be rescheduled due to schedule conflicts.
