A boil-water advisory that has been in effect for McKeesport-area residents since Saturday night has been lifted.

The Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County announced Wednesday morning that  water samples over two consecutive days from the city, Port Vue, Versailles and White Oak were all clear.

Storage tank levels are at normal conditions so it is no longer necessary to conserve water, said Matt Junker, authority spokesman.

The advisory was put into place after an intake pump at the McKeesport Water Treatment Plant failed Saturday evening, flooding the facility and forcing it to be closed temporarily. That caused water pressure to fall throughout the system, leading the authority to impose water conservation orders for some communities and a boil-water advisory for all four communities served by the plant.

About 16,000 customers were affected.
