Boil water advisory issued in Detroit following water main break
Part of downtown Detroit is under a boil water advisory following a water main break.
The Great Lakes Water Authority and Detroit Water and Sewerage Department responded to a 42-inch break around 11 pm Saturday night.
The DWSD says the main has been isolated, and no customers should be without water service. Some customers may experience low water pressure until the main is repaired. A boil water advisory has been issued as a precautionary measure.
The advisory affects residents and businesses in the area bounded by the John C. Lodge Service Drive on the west, Mount Elliot on the east, Interstate 75 on the north and Detroit River on the south.
The DWSD says it will notify customers when the boil water advisory has been lifted.
Until then, customers should use boiled or bottled water for drinking, brushing teeth, making ice, washing dishes and food preparation.
