GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - A boil water advisory has been lifted for Bear Creek residents in Outagamie County.

Officials say a water main break on Friday, February 17, 2023, caused a loss of water pressure, which could have increased the risk of contamination entering drinking water.

On Tuesday, the village announced water had been tested and had two consecutive rounds of safe bacteria testing results.

Villagers are no longer required to boil water.

“Please keep in mind your water may have a brown tint, this is just sediment and is completely safe. You should run you water for a little while which will help clear it,” reads a statement from the village.
