Thousands of Melbourne residents are still being urged to boil their waters days after the initial storm as Yarra Valley Water continues to address the issue.

As of 4pm on Sunday afternoon, the boiled water advisory has been lifted for a number of suburbs across the state including Craigieburn, Broadmeadows and Greenvale. However, many suburbs are still under the advice to boil water prior to consumption to avoid gastro-like symptoms.

According to Yarra Valley Water, residents in the affected suburbs will be notified when the water is safe to drink. If you live in one of the following suburbs, experts recommend to continue boiling your water until further notice.

More than 50 suburbs are still affected, and are urged to bring water to a rolling boil before drinking, washing or preparing food, brushing teeth or making ice. However, unboiled water is still safe for hand washing purposes.

The warning has been issued out of precaution, with Yarra Valley urging the young, elderly and immunocompromised to take extra care to avoid health complications.
