SPRINGVILLE — A boil advisory issued on Friday for most of western Springville was lifted Saturday following state testing.

The order was placed after one of the city’s water tanks was vandalized and found with golf balls inside.

According to city officials, it appears any contamination was minimal since all water is disinfected with chlorine. Test results from a state-approved testing lab showed no harmful contamination.

The issue was discovered Friday morning and the tank was isolated soon after.

"All current evidence indicates that the water yesterday did, and still does meet State drinking water standards. Based on the test results received, the drinking water is safe for human consumption," read a city statement on Saturday.

Anyone with information on the vandalism is asked to contact Springville police at 801-489-9421.
