PARKER, Ariz. (AP) - An advisory recommending that residents of the Colorado River Indian Tribes reservation in western Arizona boil water before using it has been lifted following testing after repairs to a broken water main.

A spokesman for the tribe, Mike Scerbo (SIR’-bo) said Saturday that test results processed Friday night determined that the water is safe for drinking and cooking.

Today’s News-Herald in Lake Havasu City reported that two area hospitals had to cancel surgeries after a contractor struck the water line Wednesday. People with medical emergencies were referred to other health care facilities.

The town of Parker itself was not impacted because it’s served by another water system.
