A boil water advisory for the southwest Iowa city of Prescott has been lifted.
The state Department of Natural Resources and utility group Southern Iowa Rural Water issued the advisory on Wednesday.
Officials said a contractor hit a water main, causing the city to lose water pressure. That can allow bacteria to enter the drinking water.
The order was lifted at 3:30 p.m. Friday after two water sample sets were free of bacteria, according to the Natural Resources department.
Prescott is in Adams County, about 90 miles east of Omaha, and has about 257 residents.
