Nathan Risen of East Washington Rural Water Corporation notified WSLM this morning that the boil water advisory in effect for most of the week has been lifted.

EWRW repaired a six-inch main break on 135 South at Blue River earlier in the week, but had to issue a boil water advisory as a precaution.

This affected all EWRW customers in the southwest portion of Washington County, around 900 customers in total. Everyone south of Rudder Rd. and west of Highway 60, all 141 and 142 accounts only, were under the boil water advisory.

Risen said satisfactory water samples had to be approved two days in a row and that has been done.

“We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate the patience of our customers,” said Risen.
