Boil water advisory lifted in aftermath of Totowa body discovery

A boil water advisory, instituted after a tragic discovery, was lifted Thursday after officials deemed the water safe.

The advisory took effect Wednesday, after the body of a missing woman was found in a water tank at a Totowa water treatment plant. Water authority officials say the entire plant will be shut down and chlorinated despite the fact that the water has been tested and declared safe.

Meanwhile, detectives are still investigating the death of 43-year-old Geetha Angara. The senior chemist?s body was found in one of the water tanks at the plant Wednesday night. According to the Passiac County prosecutor, his office has not learned if Angara?s death was an accident or a crime. He adds that it will be several days before the autopsy results are available.
