This boil water advisory has ended.

FLINT, Michigan—As part of the ongoing water main replacement and repaving project on East Court Street, water service was temporarily disrupted on Monday, June 22, 2020, for some nearby residents, and a precautionary boil water advisory will be issued for the same area when their water service is restored. 

The affected areas are: 

  • Court Street from Kensington Street to Crapo Street
  • Beard Street, East Fork Drive and Woodside Drive

Residents on Avon Street east of Court Street also may experience low pressure, but will not be included in the boil water advisory. 

Again, this boil water advisory will NOT impact the entire City of Flint. Only areas and streets listed above will be impacted. Information on the disruption in water service and the precautionary boil water advisory also was distributed to all households in the area. 

Water was temporarily shut off to the area earlier today June 22, 2020. The City of Flint Water Department is working in conjunction with Diponio Contracting to facilitate the work as quickly as possible to limit the disruption in service. Water service is expected to be restored today. 

When water service is restored, households in the affected area will be under a precautionary boil water advisory for at least 24 hours. Any residents who live in the area and lose water service even though they are not listed above affected areas also should follow the boil water advisory.

We apologize for any inconvenience this will cause residents. The disruption in water service will allow crews to install a 24-inch transmission main and connect it to the existing water distribution system. This main has already been constructed, passed pressure testing and has been disinfected.

Water samples will be taken to ensure water quality meets all state drinking water standards. Provided the samples pass testing, the boil water notice is expected to be lifted after 24 hours.
