Portland officials lifted a citywide boil-water alert Saturday, a day after announcing that tests showed the presence of E. coli in the city’s water supply. The alert covering the city and several suburbs was lifted at 11 a.m. “Follow-up testing of drinking water has shown the absence of bacterial contamination,” said Tim Hall, spokesman for the Portland Water Bureau. “This will flush any potentially contaminated water from the plumbing,” he said. Tri-County Health Officer Paul Lewis said the E. coli came from animal fecal matter. The most likely symptom from people drinking contaminated water would be diarrhea.
