A precautionary boil water advisory has been lifted for people using the west Ottawa community of Carp's communal well water system.

Ottawa Public Health issued the advisory Wednesday evening after the well water system lost pressurization.

The issue was fixed, the pipes were flushed, the water has been tested and is deemed safe to drink again. The advisory was lifted Friday.

More than 700 households were affected.

Residents are asked to run their cold water taps for one minute upon first use.
