The Garberville Sanitary District passes along word that a state laboratory has concluded its testing, and has determined that the municipal water supply “is absent of anything harmful and is safe to drink.”

The “boil order” announced over the weekend — prompted by concerns over possible chlorine contamination — has now been lifted.

“Thank you to all those who assisted us over the weekend and made available equipment and water trucks,” writes Ralph Emerson, general manager of the GSD. “We are in a community that amongst differences, comes together in times of need to help others.”

Emerson promises that the district will soon be issuing a postmortem on the events that prompted state regulators to issue the boil order
