North Lee water system removed from boil list

The state health department has lifted a boil water advisory for customers on the North Lee Water Association No. 2 system along Birmingham Road in Lee County.

It was among systems in five counties that were released from the boil list Thursday, state Department of Health officials said.

Boil water notices are issued when a public water supply loses pressure, allowing possible contaminants to seep into the system, officials said. The department considers water in such systems to be contaminated until subsequent laboratory tests show the water is safe.
