Ashland lifts boil water advisory, says water lines repaired and tank levels stable

Officials in Ashland have lifted a boil water advisory that affected more than 50,000 customers.
The advisory had been in place since January 29. It was issued after widespread water line breaks caused by the freeze-and-thaw winter weather cycle which left water tanks low.
The newspaper reports the boil water advisory led one retail establishment to close and others were forced to serve bottled or canned drinks.
City manager Ben Bitter says all line breaks have been repaired and water tank levels are stable.
