COLUMBIA — A boil order in effect for northeast Columbia was lifted Sunday evening.
A news release from the city of Columbia said two samples from a repaired water line had come back showing no bacterial contamination. Residents will be notified by an automated phone system that the water is OK to drink.
The area that had been effected was described as north of Mexico Gravel Road, east of Wellington Drive, south of Mount Hope Road and west of Route PP.
The following subdivisions are included in the area:
- Garden City
- Deer Ridge
- Dakota Ridge
- Lakeland Circle
- Lakeshire Estates
The area had been under a precautionary boil order since Friday, when a 12-inch water main on Mexico Gravel Road broke because of a construction accident.
Two other water mains have broken on Mexico Gravel Road in the last week. The first, a 16-inch main, broke June 20. A 12-inch main in the same area broke on Tuesday, extending the initial boil order from Sunday.
