Tap water can now be used again for consumption, sterile procedures and surgeries.

The PDWA was issued on Tuesday morning after a significant drop in water pressure.

SHR officials said there were minimal delays in procedures or surgeries during the PDWA, although they said a few patients were impacted and they have reached out to them individually.
