Plymouth — The city of Plymouth lifted its boil water alert Friday morning after a series of water main breaks.

Test results showed that the city’s water meets or exceeds standards for drinking, the city reported Friday.

The city issued a boil alert at 5:30 a.m. Thursday, affecting 9,100 residents.

The waterline breaks caused the system to initially lose pressure. Water staff flushed the system and collected samples for bacteriological testing.

Officials were advising residents to not drink the water without boiling it first, but that was lifted at 10:30 a.m. Friday.
