The boil advisory for the city of Hazelton has been lifted.

Ange Black with the city of Hazelton called KMVT Wednesday morning to say the most recent boil advisory had been lifted.

The boil advisory went into effect on Tuesday, July 2. Crews struck another line on July 3 and the testing process restarted. The Fourth of July weekend delayed some of the testing. Black said samples were again taken for testing on Monday and Tuesday and came back clean Wednesday morning.

The city of Hazelton issued a new boil advisory Tuesday for residents.

KMVT received a call from the city of Hazelton. City officials said water crews struck a water line and as a precautionary measure are issuing the advisory. The advisory is in effect until further notice.

People are advised to not drink any tap water unless it's been boiled.

The city is currently undergoing an extensive pipe replacement project, replacing the more 70-year-old pipes with state-of-the-art ones.

The city submits water samples for testing for two days to confirm there are no contaminants in the water.

KMVT will post an update once the advisory is lifted.
