FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (AP) -

A final boil water advisory has been lifted following last week's water main break that affected about a dozen suburban Detroit communities.

The Oakland County Water Resources Commissioner's office issued the all-clear Monday morning for the northwest part of Farmington Hills, saying testing confirmed the water is safe to consume.

Officials say, however, that people should review steps that should be taken before water is used following a boil water advisory.

The Great Lakes Water Authority lifted the advisory Sunday for six other Oakland County communities and the rest of Farmington Hills. Other affected communities had the advisory lifted earlier.

Officials say more than 300,000 people were affected by last Monday's break in Farmington Hills. Crews last week installed new sections of a broken 48-inch  line.
