The Fayetteville Public Works Commission lifted a boil-order for its water customers on Sunday.Officials say tests have confirmed that water now meets safe drinking standards. Water is safe to use for any purpose and it is no longer necessary to boil water before using it.

Fayetteville PWC first issued a boil advisory on Thursday, when a water main ruptured. Officials said bacteria could have contaminated the water supply through that break.

PWC Officials say it tested 32 locations throughout the system on Friday after the water system was restored and operational.

On Saturday, an inconclusive test result made it necessary to extend the advisory until all areas were confirmed to be clear.

PWC tested 3 areas in and around the inconclusive test location to insure all water was safe for its customers.

Those test results confirmed early Sunday evening that no contamination was present.
