If you get water from the Emmaus Borough Water System, it's okay to drink from the tap.

Residents in the Lehigh County borough had been boiling their water since Friday, when a water main broke around noon.

According to Emmaus officials, the problem has been corrected and it's no longer necessary for customers to boil their water before using.


The leak originally happened on Orchid Circle, Stoklea Drive, the 900-1000 block of Liberty Street, the 300 block of Iroquois Street, and 14 Golf Circle.

Officials conducted water quality tests, which indicated the water is safe to drink.
