LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A boil water advisory in the Landsdowne Shoppes area in Lexington has been lifted earlier than expected.

Kentucky American Water said the advisory would be in effect until 7:45 p.m. Saturday, but spokesman Susan Lancho said it was lifted around 11:00 a.m.

The boil water advisory was in effect after a water main break happened at about 9 p.m. Thursday.

It impacted residents and businesses between Landsdowne and Malibu drives.

The burst pipe was located near a rocky area and Kentucky American Water said the breakage was possibly due to shifting in the ground.

The water company says all water is restored.
