MOUNTAIN GREEN, Morgan County — A boil order was lifted Sunday after being issued on Friday afternoon for about 60 homes when a pipe broke in Morgan County, according to state officials.

Affected homes were in the Highlands subdivision west of Trappers Loop Road, officials said.

The order remained in effect until water officials verified there was no contamination in the supply.

Residents who were impacted by the order were asked to boil all water used for drinking, food preparation — including washing fruits and vegetables — making ice cubes, and brushing teeth.

The community has dealt with water issues before, according to residents.

According to UDEQ, issuing a boil order after fixing a broken line is standard procedure.

More information about what to do during a boil order can be found on the UDEQ website.
