Folks in Des Moines can drink straight from the tap again.
The Washington State Department of Health has lifted an advisory for residents of Water District 54 to boil their water before drinking it, after lab tests showed the water now meets safe drinking-water standards, a spokesman confirmed.
Officials issued the warning Saturday, after tests found E. coli bacteria in the water. No source for the E. coli was identified, but the district has inspected and disinfected the system and flushed out its water supply, a release from the department of health said.
Public Health – Seattle & King County ordered 39 restaurants closed during the advisory, and an estimated 5,000 residents of Des Moines and Normandy Park were affected.
The release encouraged Des Moines-area customers with questions or concerns about their water quality to call the water district at 206-878-7210.

A 28-year-old Normandy Park man who was arrested last month in connection with a hit-and-run accident that killed bicyclist Michael Wang last year has pleaded guilty.
King County prosecutors said that Erlin Garcia-Reyes pleaded guilty to felony hit-and-run on Tuesday and will face a prison term of 2 years and seven months to three years and five months at his sentencing hearing scheduled for Aug. 10.
Garcia-Reyes was arrested last month after Seattle police began to investigate him in connection with the accident that killed Wang on July 28, 2011.
Wang, 44, a husband, father of two and a photographer at PATH, the global health nonprofit in Seattle, was on Dexter Avenue North in Seattle headed toward his Shoreline home when he was struck by an SUV that was making a left turn onto Thomas Street, police said.
The SUV driver fled, according to police, and the accident sent shock waves through Seattle’s biking community, prompting calls for added safety measures for cyclists.
When reached last month, a spokesman for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency declined to say whether Garcia-Reyes was in the country illegally. However, the agency confirmed that it had requested a hold on Garcia-Reyes. Law-enforcement sources said a “hold” typically indicates that person’s immigration status is unclear or that they are in the country illegally and could face deportation pending the resolution of their case.

A body was discovered this morning in a fire-damaged motor home parked outside a home in Normandy Park.
Fire crews and police were called to the 1900 block of Southwest 170th Street at 7:16 a.m. on report of a vehicle fire, said Normandy Park interim Police Chief Chris Gaddis. Once the fire was out, the body was discovered on the floor between the back sleeping area and the front of the cab, Gaddis said.
A woman in her 70s and her cat had been living in the motor home since March; the woman cares for the residents of the home, Gaddis said.
The residents attempted to contact the woman, but the fire was too hot, he said.
The King County Medical Examiner is working to identify the body, and King County fire is continuing its investigation.
