The boil water advisory issued by Veolia Water Delaware on Sunday has been lifted.
The announcement issued by the water supplier said the advisory was being lifted in conjunction with the Division of Public Health, Office of Drinking Water. They said the problem has been corrected and it is no longer necessary to boil water.
A boil water advisory had been announced on May 28 due to a water main break on Darley Road in Claymont affecting approximately 2,000 customers. Residents were asked to use bottled water or to boil water before using or consuming water for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and food preparation.
