Water service to the City of Worcester has been restored, and pressure levels have returned to normal, but officials are still advising residents to boil their water as of Wednesday morning.

The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection collected its first round of water samples on Tuesday, and results should be back by noon on Wednesday.

While City officials have found no evidence that the water is contaminated, they still said that tap water should be boiled prior to using it for drinking, cooking, making baby formula, making ice cubes, brushing teeth or for pets to drink.

The Department of Public Health said to wash hands with soap and boiled or bottled water. If only tap water is available use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. The Department of Environmental Protection has recommended that young children be given sponge baths rather than put in a bathtub where they might ingest the tap water.

The city is also advising residents to avoid doing laundry for the next few days while the system fully recovers and discolored water dissipates.
