Boil water advisory issued for communities in Lower Bucks County
Pennsylvania American Water said Thursday that water service to lower Bucks County customers has high levels of turbidity or cloudiness and should not be consumed without first boiling.
The company said because of these high levels of turbidity, there is an increased chance that the water might contain disease-causing organisms.
This warning applies to all Pennsylvania American Water customers in the Yardley-area, which includes: Lower Makefield, Yardley Borough and portions of Falls Township.
Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice.
Residents carried plastic bottles and glass containers for a fill up at a water tanker.
"Things happen, but not concerned," said Darice Keyes of Lower Makefield.
"It’ll pass quickly."
Pennsbury School District announced it will be closed on Friday due to the water boil advisory.
Pennsylvania American Water said it will send an update when it is once again safe to drink water from the tap.
