Health officials lift order to boil drinking water in Lomita

After a series of tests, California Health Department officials have lifted a "boil water order" in parts of Lomita, meaning it is now safe to drink and cook with water directly from the tap.

Originally, officials had ordered residents living south of Pacific Coast Highway in Lomita -- with the exception of Harbor Hills and Rolling Vista residents -- to boil their water through Monday.

The order came after a water main broke Thursday at 262nd Street and Eshelman Avenue, officials said.
