Fremont residents no longer have to boil drinking water

Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News

Health officials say Fremont residents no longer need to boil their water before using it because no contamination was found.

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services lifted the boil order that had been in place since Thursday when storms knocked out power to Fremont’s water treatment system.

Roughly 200 samples of Fremont’s water have been collected and sampled since the storm.

Fremont Mayor Scott Getzschman thanked everyone for complying with the boil order even while the city celebrated its annual Fremont Days festival
