LAKE COUNTY, Ohio -- The Lake County Department of Utilities lifted the boil alert that was in effect for several areas of the county.

That's according to a press release sent out Thursday evening. It was also posted on social media. 

The boil alert was issued Wednesday for portions of Willoughby, Willoughby Hills and Wickliffe, resulting from a pump malfunction at the water tower at Route 91 and 84.

Officials said water samples were collected and were undergoing analysis.

The Department of Utilities earlier said there weren't any positive samples or contamination detected, and that the boil alert was only a precautionary measure.

Once again, the boil alert has been lifted and residents may resume normal use of  water, according to the Lake County Department of Utilities.
