White Pigeon boil water advisory lifted

A boil-water advisory in the village of White Pigeon has been lifted.
Municipal officials said the cancellation of the boil-water advisory was issued around 4:30 p.m. Monday after a series of tests reported negative for the presence of coliform bacteria.
The advisory went into effect around 4 p.m. Wednesday after four of eight samples being tested as a routine procedure yielded the positive result.
Coliform is typically an indication that there could be a problem with the treatment or distribution system. The presence of coliform warrants follow-up testing to see if any other bacteria of greater concern – including E. coli – are present.
The system was flushed and new samples taken eventually yielded the acceptable reading.
