The BOIL WATER ADVISORY HAS BEEN LIFTED and residents in the City of Barnesville may resume normal water use.
The precautionary Boil Water Advisory was issued on Sunday as a result of a lightning strike which caused a temporary loss of water pressure making the system susceptible for contaminants to enter the system.
