FENTON, Mich. (AP) — Fenton authorities say it’s safe for everyone in the Genesee County community to drink the water again.

The city issued a boil-water warning after discovering Wednesday that a 6-inch water man on Trealout St. was broken.

WEYI-TV (http://bit.ly/1lYvYad ) says crews were unable to make repairs without depressurizing the system, which allows bacteria to enter pipes.

That led to the warning to residents of a number of streets and apartment complexes not to use water without boiling it first.

The station reported Sunday that Fenton has lifted the order after confirming the system has been decontaminated.
