Here is the latest information from the Pubic information OPfficer for Atlantic County, according to a 6:00 a.m. briefing:

Boil Water Advisory Lifted for Atlantic City Municipal Utilities Authority

It is no longer necessary for customers to boil their water before using, however it is strongly recommended that you run your water faucets for 3-5 minutes to flush your interior plumbing. Empty and clean your automatic ice makers and water chillers. Drain and refill your hot water heater if the temperature is set below 113 degrees Fahrenheit. Water softner/cartridge filters should be run through a regeneration cycle or other manufacturer-recommended procedures. For more information visit: www.acmua.com.

A state of emergency remains in effect throughout Atlantic County and a nightly curfew remains in effect, 6 PM - 6 AM, in all 5 barrier island communities (Brigantine, Atlantic City, Ventnor, Margate and Longport).
