COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Columbus officials have canceled a water advisory that had been in effect for the past two weeks in parts of the city.

The city issued the advisory on June 8 after unacceptably high levels of nitrates were found in samples from the plant that supplies central and west Columbus, including some suburbs. The city said the water should not be given infants younger than 6 months or used to make infant formula, juice or baby cereal.

The city lifted the advisory on Monday after nitrate levels dropped.

Officials say the contamination was caused by fertilizer runoff from farms and lawns. Water in other parts of the city wasn’t affected.
