Is a public water system (PWS) required to notify customers when a boil water notice has been lifted?

EPA recommends that when microbiological contamination is resolved, a PWS should issue a follow-up notice stating that it is no longer necessary to continue boiling the water (Final State Implementation Guidance for the Public Notification (PN) Rule, EPA816-R-01-010, October 2001).
