Boil water advisory extended for 130,000 people in Metro Detroit
LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The boil water advisory impacting more than 100,000 Michiganders in Metro Detroit was extended by another week on Tuesday.
- 130,000 people in Metro Detroit remain under boil water advisory
- Governor Whitmer declares state of emergency for Southeast Michigan
A water main broke Saturday, impacting residents in Lapeer, Macomb, Oakland, and St. Clair counties. Officials said it could take two weeks to fix.
The original plan was one week of repairs and another for quality testing, which put Aug. 27 as the target date people would have safe drinking water.
The water boil advisory will be lifted when sampling from the water confirms it is safe to drink.
The current estimate for safe drinking water is Sept. 3.
Just in case you missed it: After inspection the ruptured section of the water main is bigger than initially thought. The estimated completion time for the repair is now 9/3.
