COLUMBIA — The boil order has been lifted for people living in the Thornbrook and Millcreek Manor subdivisions as well as Blackfoot Road, Cedar Cliff Drive and Kraemer Court.

The order was issued Tuesday after water mains broke in the area. Two consecutive days of testing found the water is safe to drink, according to a news release from the city.

Columbia Water and Light collected samples from the repaired water lines that required 24 hours of incubation. The samples showed no bacterial contamination.

Customers will be notified of the end of the boil order by a phone call and hang tag on their door.
