A water ban is entering its third day in southeast Michigan and northwest Ohio after tests show some toxins still contaminate Lake Erie.

Toledo Mayor D. Michael Collins says tests done by state and federal authorities indicate a positive trend, but additional testing is necessary.

The city council is to review the test results at its regularly-scheduled meeting on Monday.

Ohio's fourth-largest city warned residents not to use city water early Saturday. Tests at one treatment plant showed readings for microcystin above the standard for consumption, most likely from algae on the lake.

In southeastern Michigan, authorities were operating water stations Sunday for the 30,000 customers affected by the toxic contamination. They are expected to reopen Monday morning.

Drinking the water could cause vomiting, cramps and rashes. But no serious illnesses had been reported by late Sunday. Health officials advised children and those with weak immune systems to avoid showering or bathing in the water.

Officials will hold a press conference around 9:30 a.m. Monday to share the latest information on the water ban. The press conference will livestream in the video player above when it begins. Livestreaming is only available for desktop users at this time.
