Boil Water Advisory For Jacksonville Neighborhood Lifted

The city of Jacksonville says the boil water notice for a section of Brynn Marr has been lifted.

The advisory was issued as a result of repairs that were made to a water line break in Brynn Marr on Brynn Marr road on Monday. The line was repaired.

State regulations require a boil water advisory to be issued if water systems lose pressure. There was no evidence of contamination and testing was performed according to the regulations.

The tests have been completed, and no evidence of contamination was found and therefore the advisory was lifted.
