Attention: Water boil advisory has been lifted.— Aspinwall News (@AspinwallNews) February 4, 2018
Residents who live on Eighth Street and above were without water since Feb. 1 when crews found breaks in three borough waterlines.
The leaks were detected on West 8th, Center Avenue and 11th Street, prompting the Department of Environmental Protection to issue an advisory. Loss of pressure in the waterlines due to the breaks could have led to disease-causing organisms and residents were instructed to boil water for at least one minute before consuming, bathing or brushing their teeth.
Water service in lower Aspinwall was not impacted.
