DESHLER, NE — A southeast Nebraska town's water supply is back to safe levels, leading to lifting of a boil water order. 

Wednesday afternoon, officials with the City of Deshler announced residents no longer have to boil their water before use. The order had been in place since Sept. 8. 

The order was put in place due to a loss of pressure in the town's water system. When that happens, it creates conditions which bacteria can grow, leading to the boil water order. 

After fixing the issue, the water is tested to ensure it is safe before lifting the order. Wednesday, officials told NCN tests came back negative for contaminants and the order was lifted.
