Boil Water Advisory Still in Effect in Parts of Montgomery County

Residents in several Montgomery County townships are also being asked to conserve water.

The townships of East and West Norriton, Lower Providence, Whitpain, Worcester, and Whitemarsh in Montgomery County remain under a boil water advisory, KYW 1060 reports.

Pennsylvania-American Water — a subsidiary of American Water, a Voorhees-based water utility company — says that the recent heavy rains are the reason for the boil water advisory: The Norristown Water Treatment Plant was unable to meet its usual production capacity as a result.

Residents in those areas (and nearby Upper Merion and Perkiomen townships) are also asked to conserve water. Don’t wash your car or water your lawn for a little bit!

County officials have forced most of the restaurants in the area to close, while many schools released students early.
