Boil water advisory lifted for Millersville neighborhood

Boil water advisory lifted for Millersville neighborhood.
A boil water advisory issued for a Millersville neighborhood earlier this week was lifted Friday morning, according to Lancaster city’s public works department.
The advisory was for residents of the following streets: Village Green Lane, Fresh Meadow Drive, Quaker Hills Road, Saint Regis Lane, Blue Ridge Drive, Walnut Lane, Glen Oaks Drive, Alan Drive, Oak Ridge Drive, Pilgrim Drive, Wabank Road and Cedarhurst Circle.
"Your water is safe to drink, and we have lifted the boil water advisory," the notice from public works director Charlotte Katzenmoyer said.
The water department recommends running cold water faucets or water fountains for 2-3 minutes, flushing automatic ice makers, draining and refilling hot water heaters if set below 115 degrees and running water softener through a regeneration cycle.
Customers were advised to boil their drinking water due to a drop and loss of water pressure in parts of the neighborhood.
The advisory was issued Wednesday and was lifted at 7:30 a.m. Friday.
It creates conditions that could allow contamination to enter the distribution system.
Questions can be placed with the water quality laboratory at 717-291-4818 Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The water emergency number for after hours is 717-291-4816.
