ST. CLOUD, Wis. (WFRV) — The boil water advisory for the Village of St. Cloud has been lifted.

The advisory had gone into effect Monday morning after a large leak was detected in the water system.

The leak caused the water pressure to decrease to a level that required a boil water notice to be placed as a safety precaution.

Crews have repaired that leak and water has been tested to ensure it is safe for consumption.
