Further update from the BA site:

City crews have begun testing the water supply citywide and should have the
process completed by the end of the day.

“Crews will be testing 40 sites throughout the distribution system to
ensure the entire City is safe,” said Director of Communications Stephanie
Higgins. “We anticipate this will be completed by late this afternoon.”

Test results will not be available until late Thursday afternoon. As a
precaution, the City’s water plant operators added a significant amount of
chlorine to the water before distributing it into the water system.

The precautionary boil advisory is still in effect until further notice.
Once the results of the tests are received and there are no negative
impacts on the system, the advisory will be lifted.

So looks like they should have results of testing tomorrow.  I anticipate
boil order will be lifted.
