BEAVERTON, Ore. (KOIN) — Tualatin Valley Water District has lifted the boil water notice for customers south of Farmington Road in Beaverton.

The notice was issued Wednesday afternoon when a broken valve on a 12-inch water main resulted in a loss of water pressure. As a precaution, TVWD advised customers to boil their water.

TVWD repaired the valve and collected samples, determining the water was safe to drink.

Wednesday’s notice affected 5,650 customers.

Under a boil water notice, customers can disinfect their water by boiling it for a minute then cooling, using bottled water or by using water purification tablets according to the instructions.
