DETROIT (AP) - Officials say a boil water advisory covering parts of Detroit and the enclaves of Hamtramck and Highland Park is being lifted.

The city of Detroit says the update comes after the Great Lakes Water Authority announced Friday that a second round of tests came back showing the water is safe.

An equipment malfunction at a Great Lakes Water Authority treatment facility on Tuesday caused low water pressure. The problem was addressed, but the advisory was issued afterward due to concerns that bacteria could have gotten into the system.

The city says people are no longer advised to boil their water for drinking and cooking purposes. Dozens of schools were closed because of the advisory.
