A boil order in Judsonia issued Monday for the Oakdale Nursing Home and surrounding area was lifted Friday.

The precautionary measure was put in place because of a water line break on the corner of Cynthia Street because of “the possibility that contaminated water may have entered the distribution system as a result of complete loss in normal system pressure,” according to a news release from Pangburn Waterworks.

Bacteriological samples were taken last Tuesday and “found to ‘safe,’ and a satisfactory disinfectant level has been established throughout the distribution system.”
