County officials have lifted a health advisory for municipal water use.

The Lincoln County Health Department placed the advisory on Libby’s municipal water supply after an increase in turbidity earlier this month.

The advisory encouraged vulnerable residents to consider purifying any water coming out of taps or turning to an alternative water source.

Vulnerable individuals included the immunocompromised, young children, pregnant women and the elderly.

Bacteriological samples taken March 21 showed safe results, and turbidities have returned to normal levels, according to the health department.
