Water samples crypto-free

10:41 a.m.

There were no cryptosporidium oocysts detected in the most recent water samples taken late last week from points along Baker City's muncipal system, said Baker City Manager Mike Kee .

The four sites where the Oregon Health Authority wanted additional testing: Salmon Creek, Marble Springs, Birch Street and Little Marble Creek.

All four locations were also tested on August 11 and deemed clear of crypto. A water advisory was issued July 31 and a boil order when tests confirmed the presence of crypto in the water supply.

These sites came up crypto-free between August 1 and August 4 but the length of time between samplings at these locations made state officials seek out additional samples, according to previous reports.

City officials expect to lift the boil order later today.
