SANFORD, Fla. — A boil water notice has been lifted for a portion of Sanford residents.

The city sent out a statement Saturday advising residents south of 25th Street (SR 46), east of Old Lake Mary Road and east of Beardall Avenue to boil all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth or washing dishes, to avoid any contaminates. 

The city said the notice would be lifted once a bacteriological survey showed the water is safe to drink.
