LAFAYETTE, Colo. — Health officials in Lafayette said the boil water notice that was issued Friday evening to people who live in a portion of the Indian Peaks Subdivision has been lifted.

City officials said the advisory was rescinded at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday.

The water previously tested positive for E. coli contamination.

On Saturday, officials said test results concluded that the contamination has been eliminated, and residents are no longer required to boil water.

The affected areas included residents east of 95th Street and north of Baseline Road within the Indian Peaks Subdivision, and a small area south of Baseline Road near Indian Peak Drive.

The problem was isolated, and did not affect the remainder of the Lafayette water system.

The cause of the contamination has not been determined.
