"We are lifting the boil-water order because we have two days with ac- ceptable Sauda said. "All of the samples collected by the city Thursday and Friday were acceptable. There's no coliform or E. coli pres- ent." The E. coli bacteria can cause se- vere intestinal illness. Health officials issued the boil-water order Thursday, warning that people in an area cover- ing a quarter of Syracuse were at risk of illness if they drank contaminated water. None of the bacteria has been found in water samples collected since Tues- day. Eight samples of city water were taken Saturday, with results expected Monday. Dr. Cynthia Morrow, the county health commissioner, said officials are now convinced the water is safe to drink.

The Associated Press Baghdad, Iraq Sunni Arabs voted in surprisingly high numbers on Iraq's new constitution Saturday, many of them hoping to defeat it in an intense competition with Shiites and Kurds over the shape of the na- tion's young democracy after dec- ades of dictatorship. With little violence, turnout was more than 66 percent in the three most crucial provinces.. The constitution still seemed like- ly to pass, as expected. But the large Sunni turnout made it possible that the vote would be close or even go the other way, and late Saturday it appeared at least two of a required three provinces might reject it by a wide margin. Washington hopes the constitu- tion will be approved so that Iraqis can form a legitimate government, tame the insurgency and enable the U.S. troops to begin to withdraw. After polls opened at 7 a.m., whole families turned out at voting stations, with parents carrying young children, sometimes in holi- day clothes. Men and women lined up by the hundreds in some places or kept up a constant traffic into heavily bunkered polls. Some 9 million Iraqis cast ballots, election officials said, announcing a preliminary turnout estimate of 61 percent.
