DECATUR, Ind. (WANE) After more than two days, the city of Decatur has lifted its Boil Water Advisory. According to John August, director of the Adams County Emergency Management Agency, the advisory was lifted at 9:30 a.m. Sunday.

The Adams County Emergency Management Agency issued the advisory Thursday afternoon after a water main broke at the Decatur water plant.

Residents no longer need to boil water for drinking and cooking. The city was under the advisory for a few days because according to August, the water needs to pass two tests given 24 hours apart in order to be deemed safe to drink.
