The boil advisory was issued early Sunday morning by the city government. On Monday around 8:40 a.m., the city said the following areas and neighborhoods are no longer affected:

  • Highway 93 from Ingles to Berkeley Drive
  • Cambridge Drive from Highway 93 to the Ingles driveway
  • Old Central Road from Highway 93 to Ford Road
