Residents can use the water under current guidelines for the citywide boil water notice. Water must be boiled before consumption.

The decision was made after post-hydrant flush test samples showed no traces of chemicals or contaminate present, according to the release.

The industrial area (red area on the map) remains under a do-not-use notice but the City continues to work to get restrictions reduced.

Residents are asked to continue conserving water so that that water tanks can be filled and pressure regained at the plant. Water should only be used for flushing toilets or using water to drink or cook after being boiled.
