(Lehi-AP) -- Some residents in Lehi are still under orders to boil their tap water before using it.
A test last week turned up a contamination with coliform bacteria in the water. Around 300 families in the Thanksgiving Point and Pilgrim's Landing areas were told that water must be boiled for at least a minute before it is safe to use.
The order will continue at least through tomorrow.
Water works officials are re-treating the water and flushing the system. Then they must wait 16 hours before a new test can be performed.
The bacteria contamination could cause nausea, diarrhea, cramps and headaches.
