A voluntary boil order that has been in place for some Sequoyah County residents since January 13 has now been lifted.
The order was in place for residents north of Sallisaw in the area along Old Highway 17 north from the Highway 101 area to Marble City. Sequoyah Little Farms residents were included in the advisory but Marble City residents were not.
Sequoyah County Rural Water Association manager Vance Mooney stated on Thursday that all water samples have been tested and passed.
Water line breaks and repairs were the reason for the initial order which was voluntary. During the period of the boil order the water was fully chlorinated, according to Mooney. The order was put in place as a precaution.
