The boil water advisory for Wlliamstown residents has been lifted.

The city had to shut down the water Monday in part of the city in order to fix a fire hydrant.

After fixing the hydrant earlier this week, residents were under the advisory which affected about twenty percent of the town's water customers.

Water samples from the lab came back clean.

City officials say around Thanksgiving that a car apparently hit the hydrant located at Third street and Highland avenue.

Some Williamstown residents and businesses will be without water Monday.

The city will be turning off about 20 percent of the town's water in order to fix a fire hydrant.

City officials say around Thanksgiving, a car apparently hit the hydrant located at Third street and Highland Avenue.

Since then it has been determined the fire hydrant can't be fixed and will need to be replaced.

"I'm just sorry for all the inconvenience we've caused. We didn't knock the hydrant off, but it does need to be replaced. There's several businesses in this area that if there ever would be a fire they definitely need this hydrant," Bob Kimble, city director of public works, said.

The water will be off from about 8 a.m. Monday morning until no later than 4 p.m.

Those affected will need to boil their water for 24 hours after it's turned back on.
