Halifax Water has lifted a precautionary boil water advisory for several communities after repairing a broken water main in Lower Sackville.
The break occurred Friday near the intersection of Cobequid Road and Glendale.
The utility said in a release issued Monday afternoon that water service has been restored.
The boil advisory was issued for customers in the Halifax-area communities of Fall River, Waverley, Windsor Junction, Capilano, Miller Lake, Frame, Silverside, Lakeview and Lower Sackville.
The 3,500 affected residents should boil their tap water for two minutes prior to use for consumption or cleaning.
James Campbell, a spokesman for the utility, said on Saturday that the boil advisory was very much a precaution and that there was no actual indication of there being anything wrong with the water.
