LINCOLN COUNTY, Tenn. (WHNT) — An alert issued earlier this week for residents living in some parts of Lincoln County, Tenn. said they should boil all drinking water before use. Now, that warning has been lifted.
As of Friday, December 30, officials with the Lincoln County Board of Public Utilities (LCBPU), said the issue has been corrected.
On Tuesday, the EMA issued a “Drinking Water Warning” for residents specifically in the Hot Rock, Skinem, and Unity communities. The warning comes after the Lincoln County Board of Public Utilities (LCBPU) “experienced a significant loss of water pressure” in the affected areas.
The utility company said ten samples were collected from the affected areas and none of them contained bacteria.
All further questions should be directed to the Lincoln County Board of Public Utilities at 931-433-2259, ext. 2.
