PROVIDENCE (AP) — Authorities have lifted boil water advisories for four water systems in Rhode Island.

The Rhode Island Department of Health says the advisories have been lifted for the Suez Water, Narragansett-Point Judith, South Kingstown-South Shore, and South Kingstown-Middlebridge water systems.

They have been in place since Aug. 31. Officials say recent samples taken in those systems were free of bacteria.

The boil water advisory for people in the Narragansett-North End system is still in place because samples collected on Sept. 5 and Sept. 7 contained coliform bacteria.
