BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - State Health Department officials have lifted a boil order in Crosby, meaning residents in four affected towns in Divide and Burke counties can now safely drink their tap water.

Residents in both counties were told on March 15 to boil tap water or use bottled water after a break in a Western Area Water Supply Authority pipeline.

The department lifted the boil order for Fortuna, Columbus and Noonan on Wednesday morning. It lifted the order for Crosby in the afternoon.

The pipeline break has been fixed, and health officials say test results show that the water is safe to drink in four affected cities.
