A United Utilities spokesman said: “With immediate effect, customers in certain parts of Blackpool, Chorley and Preston can drink from the tap as normal and are no longer required to boil their water.
“The lifting of the boil water notice only applies in certain postcode areas. For all other customers, the boil water advice remains in place until further notice.”
Some of the areas included include parts of Preston although the boil water warning is still in place for many.
It is expected that over the next week more areas should have the water warning lifted. United Utilities are hopeful that the majority of customers will not have to boil water from the end of next week.
