Water service has been restored to all customers in Scranton and Moosic after a water main break on River Street; however, a boil-water advisory remains in effect while Pennsylvania American Water analyzes water samples from the distribution system.
Per state requirements, the utility must collect samples for two days after a main line break.
A boil-water advisory for West Wyoming and parts of Swoyersville issued in the wake of the line break was lifted Sunday morning.
Until the advisory is lifted, Scranton and Moosic customers need to boil water before using it for drinking, cooking, washing dishes and for pets. It is OK to shower or bathe, but do not swallow the water. Customers should not use their dishwashers.
Customers also may see some discoloration or air in their lines.
Tankers and bottled water remain available until the advisory is lifted at the locations listed below. Due to reduced demand, the utility has changed the times when the sites are available to 6 a.m to 6 p.m. The Stafford Avenue location remains available around the clock.
Pennsylvania American Water Distribution Center Garage, 2632 Stafford Ave., Scranton; Engine 2 Fire House at Gibbons and Pittston avenues; Lackawanna Ambulance, 1000 Remington Ave., Scranton; Greenwood Hose Co., Birney Avenue, Moosic; Hilltop Manor Apartments; Skyview Apartments; Valley View Apartments.
