(AP) -

A boil advisory for the city of Marble Rock in northern Iowa has been lifted after water samples show the water is safe for drinking.

The advisory was issued Tuesday as the city cleaned and inspected its water tower.

Officials say low pressure during the maintenance work creates the potential for dangerous bacteria to enter the water system.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources had urged Marble Rock residents to boil their tap water or use bottled water for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth and food preparation.
