Drinking-water advisory lifted for S. Seattle

A drinking-water advisory for parts of South Seattle, in effect since Wednesday morning, has been lifted after lab tests confirmed the water is safe to drink.

A water outage occurred when a pipe broke at the point where it connects to the large water main that supplies the area.

Seattle Public Utilities officials say some residents may have experienced discolored water as a result of the outage.

While this discoloration is not a health concern, residents should open their taps and run water until it is clear.  If the water remains discolored, they should contact SPU Customer Service at 206-684-3000.
