GLADSTONE, OR (KPTV) - A boil water notice in the city of Gladstone has now been lifted.

The Gladstone Public Works Department on Friday reported a break in a water main line in the city’s water distribution system. As a result, water could be contaminated with potentially harmful bacteria.

The notice was issued for all areas west of Oatfield Road and southeast of 82nd Drive from Hull Avenue continuing southeast to the Clackamas River.

On Sunday, Gladstone police said water samples that were sent back to the lab came back with no harmful bacteria.
