DAYTON, Iowa (AP) - The small Iowa city of Dayton in Webster County has lifted a boil advisory.

The state Department of Natural Resources said in a news release Wednesday that the advisory issued March 5 was lifted because water samples came back clean.

A water main break on March 4 caused water from a tower to drain. Loss of water pressure can allow bacteria to get into the system.

For several days, residents were encouraged to boil water or use bottled water.
