ROCK ISLAND - The boil advisory for Rock Island water customers from 7th Avenue south to the Rock River, from 11th Street east to the Moline border, has been lifted.

City staffers have tested water samples from multiple locations in the affected areas and verified the water is safe for consumption without boiling. The water pressure throughout the system is normal.

The lifting of the boil advisory does not apply to properties that were issued a separate boil order due to a main break in their area, a statement from the city said. Those boil orders remain in effect until notified otherwise.
