A boil-water advisory for a section of Renfrew, Ont., was lifted Wednesday morning after a major water main break over the long weekend.

The advisory was issued Saturday evening after a drop in pressure from the town's water supply system.

The town said in a news release testing doesn't show any contaminants.

People in the area north of the Bonnechere River are asked to run cold water for a minute through taps and hoses to flush their pipes.
