MOSCOW, Idaho -- State officials say residents at a northern Idaho mobile home park for the first time in months have save drinking water.

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality in an announcement Thursday says it has lifted an unsafe water notice at Syringa Mobile Home Park in Moscow.

The notice had been in place since December for the park's 150 residents.

The agency says the water became safe after workers fixed leaks and installed a flow-regulated chlorination system.

The agency in February filed a lawsuit against owner Magar E. Magar contending the mobile home park is violating wastewater and drinking water requirements.

That lawsuit is pending in 2nd District Court.

Residents are also pursuing a class-action lawsuit against Magar, contending lack of maintenance has made the mobile home park unsafe.
