Hellertown residents no longer need to boil their water before drinking it.
The boil water advisory was lifted at 3:00pm Thursday.
According to the borough's website, the water system's disinfection equipment failed for awhile Monday night.
Once the discovery was made, officials took measures to remove the non-disinfected water from the system, but there was a chance that contaminated water may have reached the public distribution system.
The borough continuously adds a chemical disinfectant to the water to remove disease-causing organisms.
