The boil water advisory on drinking water in south St. Vital has been lifted.

The decision to lift the advisory was made after health officials reviewed a second set of tests taken today which showed the water was safe to drink.  

"The re-tests revealed there were no bacteria in the water," said Dr. Lisa Richards, Medical Officer of Health for Environmental Health at the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority. "As a result, I rescinded the boil water advisory due to the absence of evidence to date of a risk to the public."

The WRHA issued a precautionary boil water advisory Tuesday evening for a localized area of southeast Winnipeg - south of Bishop Grandin Blvd. to the Perimeter, and east of the Red River to the Seine River.

The advisory was issued on a precautionary basis due to positive results of low level bacteria in three of the samples collected within this area.
