In an update released at 8 a.m. on October 8, Water Works officials said water has been restored to customers experiencing outages. Lines are constantly being repaired as they may break from previous damage.

The Water Works will begin flushing water lines on Friday. Depending on sample results, the Arab Water Works hopes to lift the water boil advisory as soon as Saturday evening.

Joppa, Hulaco, and Ryan Water Authority also says customers should boil water or use bottled water until Arab Water Works lifts the original boil notice.
