Repairs made, Camden's boil water order over

- The boil water order in effect in Camden since Thursday is no longer in effect.

Back then, City of Camden Water said it told customers “of a possible problem with the drinking water due to low water pressure resulting from a water main break.”

Now, the repairs have been completed and the boil water order is lifted, since water quality testing shows the water quality to be safe.

Still, you are encouraged to:

Run your water faucets for 3-5 minutes to flush your service connection and interior plumbing with water from the service main;

Empty and clean your automatic ice makers and water chillers;

Drain and refill your hot water heater if the temperature is set below 113 degrees Fahrenheit;

Run service connections with water softener/cartridge filters through a regeneration cycle or other procedures recommended by the manufacturer; and

Water reservoirs in tall buildings should be drained and refilled (as applicable).
