LEBANON, N.H. (AP) - A boil water notice has been lifted in the New Hampshire city of Lebanon after tests results show the water is clear of bacteria.

The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services had warned residents to boil their water before using it following the detection of bacteria in the city’s water distribution system.

City officials said monthly test results returned Thursday confirmed the presence of coliform and E. coli bacteria in the water.

The boil water order had affected nearly 15,000 residents and also includes the Alice Peck Memorial Hospital and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, which had plans to use safe water.

City officials said Saturday that follow-up testing came back negative for the bacteria.
