CLINTON, Utah (AP) - The Utah city of Clinton has lifted an order to boil water for the last portions of the city that remained under the advisory after an E. coli scare.

Clinton officials said Monday afternoon that water tests show no signs of the bacteria.

The city says in a statement that it will keep a higher level of chorine in the water for some time as a precaution.

Clinton announced last Wednesday that city water samples tested positive for E. coli.

The entire city was ordered to boil water until Saturday, when the order was lifted for much of the city.

Officials said the supply may have been contaminated when a resident connected irrigation water with the drinking water system.
