FAIR HAVEN, Vt. (AP) - A boil-water order has finally been lifted in the Vermont town of Fair Haven after tests showed the drinking water was clear of contamination.

The town was ordered to boil its water on Sept. 25 after coliform bacteria was found in the water system.

Town officials said Friday that recent tests showed that the boil water order could be lifted.

Residents are urged to flush their household pipes and faucets first, but running cold water for at least five minutes. They are also told to dump existing ice from automatic ice makers and make and discard three batches of ice before using it and for hot water heaters, to run enough water to replace at least one tank.
