The boil water advisory was lifted after water samples tested negative for the presence of bacteria, New Albany Borough President David Hindman said."The water is safe to drink," Hindman said on Saturday.Customers of the New Albany water system had been under a boil water advisory since Feb. 18, when residents began experiencing low water pressure and dirty water.The advisory required residents to boil water that was used for drinking or cooking.Due to the lifting of the boil water advisory, residents no longer have to boil their water, Hindman said.On Wednesday, borough workers repaired a leak that was causing the low water pressure, Hindman said.The water pressure rose back up to normal on Thursday and has remained normal since then, Hindman said.While borough workers were repairing a second leak on Saturday, that does not represent a health threat to residents, he said.That leak does not represent a health threat because, since the water pressure has been restored to normal levels, water is traveling out of the leak and is not being sucked into the municipal water system, Hindman said."Our water is going out of the leak," he said."The leak won't pull any bad water in."The leak that was being repaired Saturday was on a very small line at New Albany's sewer plant.

Daily and Sunday Review - News - 12/28/2005 - Water and sewer rates to increase by 5 percent
The Borough Council of New Albany is proposing a water rate increase for New Albany residents, partly due to a new 5 percent increase in the cost of purchasing bulk water from the TMA, New Albany Borough Council President David Hindman said.
...The New Albany Borough Council
is proposing to increase its water rates to a flat fee of $11.50, plus a charge of $3.50 for each 1,000 gallons used, Hindman
said.The current rate is a flat fee of $10, plus a charge of $3 for each 1,000 gallons of water used.The rate increase is being proposed due to the anticipated rate increase by the TMA
, to debt service on the water mains that were installed a couple of years ago and the cost of purchasing a pump to transfer water from the TMA system to New Albany's system, as well as to cost increases in other areas, Hindman
said.The council is scheduled to vote on the rate increase tonight."This is the first rate increase we've had in four years," he
did not believe the TMA increase would require a further increase in the water rates charged to New Albany Borough residents.
