Residents in these areas are no longer advised to boil their water before consumption and may return to normal use of their local water supply. This announcement comes after crews responded to the scene, eventually flushing water from nearby hydrants and testing for the water’s safety.

All of the water samples from the leakage have passed the bacteria test meaning water around these areas may once again be safely consumed. Both the advisory and its lifting come from the Forsyth County Department of Water & Sewer.
