HAZARD—A boil water advisory issued last week for much of the south end of Perry County has been lifted this week.
Hazard City Manager Grady Varney released a statement on Wednesday that the boil water advisory issued on Thursday, July 23, for the bottom of Hall Mountain, Dykes Branch to Hwy 699 and all of Hwy 699, Hwy 463, and Route 7 has been lifter.
The Kentucky Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Cabinet Division of Water determined through water samples that the contaminants were not present, and that the water was safe for human consumption. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to boil water from the Hazard Water System in those areas before using it.
