AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Health officials have lifted an advisory that urged people not to swim in portions of the Clinton River in suburban Detroit affected by a spill of about 500 gallons of a suspected petroleum product.

The Oakland County Health Division announced the update Friday, saying water activities can return to normal use.

The affected area began in Pontiac and included Auburn Hills and Rochester Hills to the border between Oakland and Macomb counties. On Wednesday, the Health Division said people should avoid swimming and all river recreational activities in that area.

The spill was reported Monday afternoon in Auburn Hills. The city says the source was believed to be in Pontiac. The Environmental Protection Agency and the state were involved in the cleanup, which health officials said Friday has been completed.
