Boil Water Advisory lifted in Montgomery County
TROY, N.C. — Montgomery County officials say a Boil Water Advisory has ended following a “major equipment malfunction” at the county’s water treatment plant.
“Based on the laboratory analysis of water samples collected throughout the county on (Tuesday), water users are hereby notified that it is no longer necessary to boil water used for human consumption,” officials said Wednesday in a news release.
Those who receive water service through the county’s treatment facility may still “see some discoloration and experience air in the lines,” but the characteristics do not represent any health risks, officials said.
A Boil Water Advisory and “mandatory water conservation notice” were issued Sunday as officials informed residents of the malfunction at the plant.
Officials said Monday they had completed repairs, but the advisory remained in effect as they continued to monitor water samples in an effort to guarantee there were no hazards.
