Boil advisories issued earlier this week for the Iowa towns of Soldier in Monona County and Murray in Clarke County have been lifted.

The Soldier advisory was issued after a hole in a well pipe drained the water tower. Loss of water pressure has the potential to allow bacteria to enter the water system. The order was lifted after two sets of water samples came back free of harmful bacteria.

Part of Murray was placed under a boil advisory following a water main break. Officials said Saturday that the line had been repaired and two separate water samples indicate the water was safe to drink.
