A boil water notice has been canceled after affecting a large portion of Healdsburg since Wednesday when a water main broke at a construction site, city officials said Friday.
The State Water Resources Control Board’s Division of Drinking Water, the Sonoma County Health Department and the city’s Water Department issued the alert Wednesday afternoon, telling people to use boiled tap water or bottled water for cooking and drinking.
The area affected was roughly bordered on the west by Healdsburg Avenue, on the north by the area of Solar Way, on the east by Canary Court, and on the south by Kinley Drive.
The city said that the boil water notice was a precautionary measure due to a loss of water pressure, and that testing of the water shows it is safe to drink again.
More details about what caused the water main break at the construction site were not released.
