DECATUR -- City water authorities lifted a boil order for the parts of Decatur south of Lake Decatur today after tests determined it was safe for drinking.

The city issued the order yesterday for the area bounded by the lake to the north, Elwin Road and the Shepherd's Hill subdivision to the south, County Highway 7 to the east, and Wesley Road to the west.

Water Management Director Keith Alexander said Monday the order was a precaution after city employees inadvertently allowed water pressure in the area to drop lower than normal for less than an hour, creating the potential for harmful bacteria to contaminate the water.

A city spokesman said citizens can resume normal activities.
