Toledo Mayor CollinsThe ban of drinking water in northwest Ohio was lifted early today, after tests of Toledo water showed safe levels of the toxin microcystin.

Toledo Mayor D. Michael Collins announced at a 9:30 a.m. news conference that all tests in the city showed non-detectable levels of the toxin, meaning that a ban of consumption of the water that had been in place since early Saturday morning was lifted. “Our water is safe,” he said.

To demonstrate his confidence, Mr. Collins finished the news conference by drinking a cup of Toledo water.

“Here's to you Toledo, you did a great job," he said.

City leaders said the cost of dealing with the crisis was high, but said they did not yet know a dollar amount.

Residents were told to flush their water systems if they had not used water since Saturday. Directions on how to flush homes and businesses would be put on the city‘‍s Web site.

Those who had used water regularly since the ban could use the system safely immediately. City officials stressed that residents should not overburden the water system by everyone turning on their water at once.
