LINCOLN, Neb. A boil water notice issued last Thursday for customers of Rural Water District #2 has been lifted, officials said. All recent tests conducted turned up negative for e.coli.

Counties affected include Cass, Otoe, eastern Lancaster and the Village of Murdock. In Lancaster County, this includes the area from 112th to 190th Streets.

Lancaster County Rural Water District #1 customers are not affected.

Also, Otoe County Rural Water District 3 is not included.

Authorities say water meant for consumption must be boiled for at least three minutes. Water used for other purposes is okay.

The notice comes after a recent sample tested positive for the e-coli bacteria. The district is not sure what caused the contamination.

The Cass County Rural Water District #2 will be updating the message on their machine on a daily basis. Customers can call 402-994-2555 and listen to the message to see if there’s been an update.
