A boil water advisory issued for Saratoga Springs residents on Thursday has been lifted, according to an announcement from the city late Saturday afternoon.
Commissioner of Public Works Anthony Scirocco had said the advisory was issued after water treatment facilities workers discovered a significant amount of water loss to the city’s reservoir around 3 a.m. on Thursday. Soon therafter the workers found a break in a 16-inch pipe running below Green Street. Crews had to replace 10 feet of piping at an estimated cost of $29,000.
According to the city’s announcment, the health department conducted tests on the water and concluded it was safe to drink.
