Lab tests have concluded that tap water in homes affected by Wednesday's water main break in Suffield is safe, according to a spokesman for the Connecticut Water Company.
The break affected Suffield residents on 45 streets north of the Route 190 bridge, and caused the water company to issue a boil-water recommendation to customers in that area, director of corporate communications Dan Meaney said in a news release.
"No customer in Suffield needs to boil their tap water or take any other precautions before drinking or using for any other purposes," Meaney wrote. "We appreciate the patience of our customers while we worked to restore service and then to test the water to confirm its quality."
Water samples were tested at a state-certified laboratory, Meaney wrote.
