RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Authorities have lifted the boil order that was issued over the weekend for Ellsworth Air Force Base.

KELO-TV (https://bit.ly/1lcUWpy ) reports that the latest water samples no longer contain E. Coli. The bacteria can make a person sick, especially those with weakened immune systems.

The boil order has also been lifted for the Antelope Ridge housing community and Vandenberg Elementary.

Residents at the base and Antelope Ridge are asked to flush all home fixtures except toilets for 15 minutes before consuming any water. Hot and cold water faucets should be run at the same time.

Managers at the base and the school should hold down water fountain buttons for 15 minutes. They should empty industrial ice machines and allow them to run for three dump cycles.
