German authorities have lifted an advisory that called for the boiling of tap water before consumption in the city of Baumholder and surrounding villages, U.S. Army Europe said on Monday.

The U.S. Army’s garrison water supply in Baumhlolder, which runs independently from municipal systems, was unaffected.
