The boil advisory has been canceled for all City of Dayton water customers after water samples taken at 4:45 p.m. contained no bacteria according to Dayton officials.
A release from the city advises that customers run their tap water until there is a noticeable drop in temperature. Before using water for drinking or cooking, customers should run the water for 30 seconds to three minutes to flush any water that may have contained lead that leached from the plumbing. Customers were also advised to clean their faucet aerator.
Water pressured was restored to 17,000 customers in the low pressure area by 9:45 p.m. Tuesday. However, about 10,000 customers in the high pressure area, which included Belmont and Patterson Park, still did not have full service restored by late Tuesday afternoon.
