FT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – A boil water order for parts of Broward County has been lifted.

The boil water advisory was issued Monday after an untreated water sample taken from one of the wells that feeds into the George T. Lohmeyer Wastewater Treatment Plant tested positive for E. coli.

The city said tests on finished, treated water samples keep indicating the drinking water is safe, but a boil water advisory was issued as a precaution.

The Lohmeyer Facility serves several cities. The advisory applies to people in Fort Lauderdale, Wilton Manors, Oakland Park and Port Everglades – as well as parts of Tamarac and unincorporated Broward County.
