PIQUA, Ohio (WDTN) - The City of Piqua Municipal Water System has lifted the order for customers to boil their water due to a malfunction with the water treatment plant.
The Boil Advisory was issued Wednesday morning after tests showed the treatment plant's finished water exceeded the allowable limit for turbidity, or cloudiness due to particles in the water. It was lifted by 3:30 pm.
City Manager Gary Huff tells 2 NEWS the boil advisory wasn't issued due to bacteria but rather excessive amounts of lime and calcium in the water.
Residents no longer need to boil all drinking water taken from the water system before making ice cubes, washing food, brushing teeth or consuming the water.
Tests confirm the water is safe to drink.
