The Boil Water Advisory issued by Schuylkill County Municipal Authority has finally been lifted.

SCMA just announced that the advisory, first issued back on Christmas Day, was lifted on Friday, Jan. 8.

Many people complained online that they were unaware of the Boil Water Advisory first being issued. The water authority said that phone calls were placed to affected homes and businesses affected by the advisory.

If you didn’t receive a phone call and were affected by the advisory, you should probably call SCMA to update your phone records and make sure your current active number matches the one they have on file.
