SHARPSVILLE — The boil-water alert issued for Sharpsville residents was lifted today.

Sharpsville borough officials received a notice at 2:18 p.m. from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection that the boil notice, which was implemented Monday evening, could be lifted after a second phase of testing found no issues with the water, Sharpsville Borough Manager Ken Robertson said.

The alert affected 1,100 residents in Sharpsville, with notices being distributed to borough residents through phone calls, texts and emails, and notices being distributed to businesses by borough employees, Robertson said.
