MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The boil water advisory in Memphis has been lifted, MLGW announced Thursday.

In a tweet, the utility company said that Boil Water Advisory is no longer in effect. Residents can now turn on water valves that have been closed.

MLGW suggests that residents do following:

  • Run all faucets at least two minutes to ensure the line is clear that is serving the faucet
  • Discard any ice made during the advisory
  • Check water filters and replace them if necessary
  • If water is still discolored, run the water until it is clear
  • Do not wash clothes in discolored water. Wait until water runs clear in the tap and then wash dark clothes first.
