Boil water advisory in effect for 14 metro Detroit communities


The water boiling advice issued early Saturday is still in effect for 13 metropolitan cities in Detroit and now includes the city of Romeo after a water pipe burst was discovered early Saturday morning.

The Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) discovered the rupture in the 120-inch water main that distributes ready drinking water to 23 communities in Oakland, Macomb and Wayne counties, affecting 935,000 residents. GLWA supplies drinking water to nearly 40 percent of Michigan’s population, and its transmission line is the largest in the regional distribution system.

Crews have determined the leak is located a mile west of GLWA’s Lake Huron Water Treatment Facility. Once the leak is isolated, crews can establish emergency connections to other pipes in the system and return some water to the affected communities.
