Boil water advisory lifted for Mountaintop region of Centre County

Local News

The boil water advisory has been lifted for the Mountaintop region in Centre County. 

For nearly two weeks 1,300 homes have been under a boil water advisory from the Snow Shoe to Pine Glen areas.

Residents in that area rely on two main water sources, but major leaks and low-water levels forced a boil advisory and conservation efforts.

“When you almost run out of water, it puts a lot of panic — not just on the community but the people who are working on it,” maintenance operator Chris Barton said.

The recent rain has also helped with the low-levels.

The water went through a total of four tests to ensure the water was safe to drink before lifting the advisory. Water authority officials were given the final green-light from the Department of Environmental Protection. 

Officials said they will continue to look at other options for a new water source.
