Atlantic City residents can breathe a sigh of relief as the boil-water advisory that was in effect for two days has been lifted. On Sunday, officials announced that the entire water system in Atlantic City had been flushed during the overnight hours, and the advisory was officially lifted late in the afternoon.

The decision to lift the advisory came after water samples were returned, confirming that there were no signs of contamination. According to the Press of AC, the test results showed that the water was safe to drink.

City officials have advised residents to run their faucets for 3 to 5 minutes to ensure that any residual contaminants are flushed out of the local water system. This precautionary measure is recommended to ensure that the water is clear and safe for consumption.

Mayor Marty Small expressed his gratitude to the residents of Atlantic City for their patience during this time. He acknowledged the inconvenience caused by the advisory and thanked everyone for their cooperation.

The boil-water advisory was initially issued on Friday evening after a sample from the local water system exceeded the allowed level for turbidity, or cloudiness.

Throughout the weekend, officials worked to rectify the situation and conducted extensive testing to ensure the water's quality. The successful completion of these tests led to the decision to lift the advisory.
