City of Akron Water Division has lifted Precautionary Boil Water Advisory


City of Akron Press Release
From the desk of Akron Water Division
Published: 10-12-2022

Akron, Ohio, October 12, 2022 — The City of Akron Water Division has lifted the precautionary boil water advisory for all customers within the northern portion of the Akron Water Distribution System including the Northampton, Smith Road and Boston Township Areas.

Water testing completed over the past 24 hours has confirmed the drinking water is safe.  EPA regulations require the City to perform testing over a 24-hour period to ensure that the drinking water is safe before a precautionary boil water advisory can be lifted. Customers are no longer required to boil their drinking water or take any special precautions. Water is safe to consume and can be used normally.

The City of Akron has since restored pressures in the affected areas.

Questions should be directed to Akron Water Distribution Dispatch at (330) 375-2420.
