Grand Rapids Lifts Boil Water Advisory

By  | 

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) -- A boil water advisory has been lifted for a Grand Rapids neighborhood following a water main break this week that created a giant sinkhole.

A 30-inch main split apart just after midnight Wednesday and cut water to 85 homes. The resulting sinkhole was so large that it held an entire tree.

Water service to area residents was restored about 24 hours later, but a boil water advisory remained in effect as a safety precaution. The city distributed bottled water to those affected.

The city released a statement Saturday that said testing found no coliform bacteria, and "the water is safe to drink."
