PORT WENTWORTH, Ga. (WSAV) — A boil water advisory in effect for some Port Wentworth residents was lifted Tuesday.

The city issued the precautionary advisory Saturday following an incident with the water system.

City officials recommend running all cold water faucets for at least five minutes and flushing all appliances that were connected to the waterline. They also recommend dumping and replacing ice machines three times.

City officials said some residents experienced very low water pressure because of a valve malfunction. However, water pressure was stabilized on Saturday.

Monday morning, city officials told WSAV the advisory is expected to be lifted Tuesday once lab results are received.
