Lund tapwater potable again

Lund residents can again drink tap water without boiling it first, VA Syd, which provides the city with fresh water, announced Sunday.

Last week, residents had been advised to boil drinking water after coliform bacteria was detected in it. While coliform bacteria are not likely to cause illness, they can indicate the presence of pathogens.

The water main, which has been disconnected, is likely the source of the problem, and according to VA Syd, it will remain shut until the problem has been found and remedied.
