Waveland lifts boil water advisory
The water in Waveland is once again safe to drink.

WAVELAND, MS (WLOX) - The water in Waveland is once again safe to drink. That’s the word from city officials as of Tuesday at noon.

The entire city has been under a boil water notice since Friday when a water line broke during road work on Highway 90 in Hancock County.

Businesses have also had to deal with the stress of not having ready to use water. Some have been buying ice, canned soda, and bottled water since the start of the advisory.

“It cost a lot of money on Friday night, one of our best nights. But things happen,” said Greg Veglia, a restaurant owner. “It’s just a pain in the neck, part of it. Just a pain in the neck.”

The water samples taken on Monday were tested, and the results returned to the city Tuesday. Officials notified the public as soon as they learned the water was safe for consumption.
