Boil Water Advisory Lifted in South Louisville

A boil water advisory for about one-thousand Louisville Water Company customers in south Louisville has been lifted. The advisory was issued yesterday for residents within the boundary streets of East Pages Lanes, St. Andrews Church Road and Third Street Road. The problem started when pressure levels dropped in two elevated storage tanks.

The water company now says water in that area is safe to drink. Customers with automatic ice machines should allow the receptable to fill twice and discard the ice before using. Those with chilled water lines in the refrigerator door should let the water run for one minute before drinking it.

I live at 8006 Rush Court in Hardwood Forest. Do we still have to boil our water? Also, if not, do we have to let our faucets run for a while?

Janice –

There are currently no boil water advisories in place, so I’d say you are fine to stop boiling your water. According to the water company’s press release, you only have to cycle through water in your automatic ice maker and cool water line in your refrigerator.
