A boil-water advisory has been lifted for residents of Hoboken, N.J. after a series of water main issues over the past three days.   

The advisory was in effect for residents until 3 p.m. Saturday. United Water officials say laboratory results confirmed that the city's water was safe to drink.

A 30-inch pipe on Willow Street and 14th Avenue was broken Thursday by a construction crew. Crews worked through the night to finish repairs and also fixed a 12-inch pipe at Willow and Eighth Avenue that flooded basements and submerged cars.
 
Another leak was reported Friday in a pipe connected to a house on Park Avenue and 13th Street Friday. The latest leak occurred Saturday on Jefferson Street, between Eighth and Ninth streets.
