Toledo mayor lifts water ban in northwest Ohio

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- TOLEDO, Ohio -- The mayor of Toledo, Ohio, has lifted a water ban that left 400,000 Ohio and Michigan residents scrambling for water for drinking, cooking and bathing.

Mayor D. Michael Collins says Monday that the Lake Erie drinking water is safe and that the warning has been lifted.

The announcement comes after people in northwestern Ohio and southeastern Michigan were told to avoid drinking tap water because of toxins contaminating the lake, possibly from algae.

Toledo officials issued the water warning in Ohio's fourth-largest city early Saturday.

The Ohio National Guard and other state agencies have been delivering pallets of bottled water to the city and operating water purification systems to make more drinkable water.
