The Boil Water Order was lifted on January 26, 2023, at approximately 5:00 p.m. The purpose of the Boil Water Order was precautionary. Since a rupture occurred and there was a hole in the reservoir, exposing the water it held to the atmosphere, it was open to possible contaminants, according to standards and regulations set by the Department of Environmental Quality. Water samples were taken daily and they all came back showing no contaminants. After the Boil Water Order was lifted, operational staff went to work trying to balance out the system, while other staff continued working with engineers and consultants to analyze how to address the lack of stored water in the system.
