FOLEY, Minn. (KNSI) - Foley water was deemed safe to drink and a boil order was rescinded Sunday, two days after E. Coli contamination was detected in the city's water supply.

The city of Foley received notice from the Minnesota Department of Health Sunday that samples taken Saturday came back negative for E.Coli, according Foley city administrator Sarah Brunn.
