Boil water advisory lifted for Banks County

By Rob Moore Reporter
HOMER - Banks County officials report the county's water customers can begin using water again without boiling it.<br /> <br /> The county does, however, encourage homeowners to take steps to alleviate any residual water that might have questionable quality.<br /> <br /> Those steps include:<br /> <br /> * Run water faucets for three to five minutes to flush interior plumbing;<br /> <br /> * Empty and clean automatic icemakers and water chillers, and drink machines that pull water automatically or hold water in reservoirs; <br /> <br /> * Drain and refill water heaters if the temperature is set below 113 degrees Fahrenheit; and<br /> <br /> * Run water softener/cartridge filters through a regeneration cycle or other procedures recommended by the manufacturer. <br />
