LINO LAKES, MN (AP) - Minnesota health officials say city water is safe to drink again in Lino Lakes.
The northern Twin Cities suburb said on its website Tuesday afternoon that the Minnesota Department of Health has lifted a Do Not Drink order.
The order was issued Monday morning after reports of low water pressure in Lino Lakes.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press (bit.ly/KD2cIo) reports a couple of residents noticed an unusually slow stream of water running from their faucets. Without pressure, harmful bacteria can more easily enter municipal water systems.
Water samples were taken from Lino Lakes' water supply to make sure no harmful bacteria had entered the city's system.
