CLINTON, Utah (AP) - Officials in the northern Utah city of Clinton says test results for tap water are not showing signs of E. coli but residents should continue to avoid it and use bottled water.

KSL-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1pf0aRG ) the city says health officials have not lifted an order to boil water.

They hope the city water supply will be back to normal late Thursday or early Friday.

The city announced water samples tested positive for the bacteria on Wednesday.

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

That has been disconnected and city officials worked to disinfect the water supply.

E. coli can cause short-term health problems, including diarrhea, cramps, nausea and headaches.
