NORTH HUNTINGDON

Boil water alert lifted

A boil water alert issued for customers in Allegheny and Westmoreland counties has been lifted, according to the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County. Authority spokeswoman Gina Cerilli said on Saturday that all bacteriological test samples were completed, and there was a negative result of bacteria. She said customers can resume normal water usage.

About 4,000 customers were advised to boil their water following a break in a 30-inch water line that occurred on Tuesday along Route 993 in North Huntingdon. The line broke when a construction crew was blasting a nearby hillside, causing a landslide onto the highway where the water line was located. Water service was returned on Thursday, but the authority cautioned customers to conserve and boil water until tests for contamination were completed.
