Hazelton residents can take a big chug of relief after the precautionary boil water advisory was lifted Thursday.

Hazelton boil water advisory rescinded

The precautionary boil water advisory in Hazelton and Gitanmaax was lifted Thursday.

The Village of Hazelton announced Thursday morning that the precautionary boil water advisory in the village and Gitanmaax has been rescinded.

The measure was put in place after weeks of persistent rain in the area disturbed the sediment in the village’s open water source, raising the prospect of disease-causing bacteria.
