The "boil water advisory," which had been in place ever since Monday's storm, has been lifted. The advisory was put into place for certain areas because a
service interruption caused by power failure to the county's water system had caused low pressure in parts of the system to drop to dangerous levels, officials said.
When this occurs, a potential health hazard may exist in these areas of zero pressure from backflow or back-siphonage of water with unknown quality levels.
The areas included areas of Polk County and northern Haralson County, specifically the Felton Community, Highway 27 South, south of Dugdown Mountain Road and in and around Bethlehem Church Road.
Other areas included Old Yorkville Hwy, Hwy 278 East of Coots Lake Rd, Williams St, Braswell Mountain Rd, Eastern Ave, Jacob Trail, Delta Lane, The Hamlett Subdivision including Stonecrest Dr, Stonecrest Court, Ashton Court and Ashwood Court.
The cities of Cedartown, Rockmart or Aragon were not included in the advisory.
