MAPLETON, Utah (AP) -- Hundreds of Mapleton residents can now stop boiling their water.
Nearly a fourth of the city's 65-hundred residents have been under a boil order since Saturday after water tests confirmed the presence of E. coli bacteria in the water system.
City officials have been flushing the affected water lines with chlorine in an attempt to eliminate the E. coli.
City crews also stopped drawing water from the spring believed to have been responsible for the contamination.
Water tests came back today and city officials say it's now safe from the bacteria and the boil order has been lifted.
