Customers in a large section of Owen County are no longer under a Boil Water Advisory, and service has been restored to most of the area.

Kentucky American Water has reported less than 100 homes are still without water service or experiencing low water pressure in the Eagle Hill region.

They said crews are working to get water flowing there again.

Residents of Owenton and everyone in Owen County living south of Owenton can resumed normal water usage Monday morning.

The Kentucky Division of Water lifted the advisory shortly after 10:30 when testing showed there was no contamination in the water.

However, an advisory remains in place for anyone living north of Progress Way and the Owen County Fairgrounds.

These customers should continue to boil their water for three minutes before consumption.
