MONROE, Michigan — A boil advisory has been lifted for customers of the city of Monroe Water System.

The advisory was in affect for customers north of the River Raisin within the Raisinville, Exeter and London Townships and the Village of Maybee after a break in a water main caused a drop in pressure, possibly contaminating the water supply.

The city says corrective measures have been taken and no coliform bacteria have been detected in the follow-up testing of the system's water.

The water is now safe to drink.

The city suggests customers affected should run each cold water tap for 60 to 90 seconds, then proceed to run hot water taps for five minutes.
