WILKES-BARRE — Pennsylvania American Water customers in Swoyersville and West Wyoming no longer have to boil their water before use, according to a news release from the water company.
Water sample analysis made Friday and Saturday showed acceptable bacteria levels and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection authorized lifting the precautionary advisory, the statement said.
The notice applies to customers in the following areas:
• West Wyoming
• Cooper Hill from Main to dead end
• Swoyersville
• Owen Street from Main to dead end
• Hughes Street from Hill to dead end
• Warsaw Street from Hill to dead end
• High Street from Hill to dead end
• Swoyer Street from High to dead end
• Hill Street from Owen to dead end
• Main Street from Owen to Stites
• Brook Street from Main to dead end
• Dennison from Main to Bohac
The boil advisory was issued Thursday due to low tank levels caused by a broken water main in Scranton.
Pennsylvania American Water thanked its customers for their patience and cooperation during this event. For more information, contact Pennsylvania American Water's customer service center at 800-565-7292.
