All-clear sounded on Safed water

A week after the Health Ministry instructed residents of Safed’s Canaan neighborhood to stop using tap water for drinking, cooking or showers because kerosene was accidentally piped into the system, the ministry gave the all clear on Sunday.
After doing a number of tests, it found that the water reaching the faucets was safe for all uses. Safed Mayor Ilan Shohat thanked the ministry for its assistance. Residents were provided with alternate sources of water during the crisis.
