Atlanta water problems: Boil water advisory ends citywide

Crews in Atlanta work to fix ruptured water main lines that have caused citywide outages.

The city of Atlanta said Thursday the boil water advisory has ended for all customers.

Until early Thursday, boil water advisories had been in effect in the areas around the East Atlanta neighborhood and, in Midtown, in the area of West Peachtree and 11th streets.

The Watershed Management Department had issued a boil water advisory on Friday “out of an abundance of caution.” after a break in a major water main and a service line near Joseph E. Boone Boulevard.

    Atlanta Watershed Management is posting updates on its website, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. There is also an updated Water Outage map from the city.
