BRUNSWICK, Md. — The water is now flowing from Yourtee Springs, but the Maryland Department of the Environment boil water alert remains in effect for residents of Yourtee Road and Weverton Road in Washington County, Brunswick City Administrator Rick Weldon said in a news release Thursday.

The water is acceptable to use without boiling for any purpose other than drinking or cooking, Weldon said.

Weldon said that the condition of the water is expected to improve to the point where the spring will be restored to normal operation in the next few days.

A tanker truck with fresh drinking water is available between of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. at Himes Country Store, 1325 Weverton Road, for any user of the Brunswick water system, he said.
