A boil advisory issued by the city of Warner Robins after a 12-inch water main break in Houston County has been lifted.

The advisory was lifted at 4 p.m. Friday after the green light from the Houston County Water Department, according to a news release from the mayor’s office.

The advisory impacted anyone who had experienced water outages or low water pressure after Thursday’s water main break, including Sandy Springs, Chadwyck, Alantown, Peach Blossom Terrace, Kentshire and Bridlewood subdvisions.

The water main break caused pressure in parts of the water system to drop to low levels, the release said. When this occurs, a potential health hazard may exist from back flow of water into the distribution system.

Residents were advised to boil all water prior to use for drinking, cooking or preparing baby food.
