COLLEGE PARK, GA (CBS46) -

A water main break on Norman Berry Drive forced a boil water advisory for the parts of the cities of East Point and College Park but the advisory has since been lifted.

Water pressure in parts of the water system dropped to dangerously low levels, which presented a potential health hazard because of backflow and/or back siphonage of water of unknown quality into the water system. 

Because of the potential risks, all citizens that experienced water outages or low water pressure were advised to boil all water prior to use for drinking, cooking or preparing baby food. 

The advisory was lifted Thursday evening.

For questions or concerns please contact the City of East Point Water Department (404) 270-7189.
