FLINT, Michigan — In order to repair broken valves with a current water infrastructure project, water service will be shut off to some nearby residents on Thursday, September 30, 2021 and a boil water advisory is NOT currently in effect.
The areas that are expected to be impacted on Thursday, September 30, 2021 are:
• Dort Highway and Carpenter Road
• Carpenter Road and Webster Road
• Going east to West Boulevard Drive
The water shut off is expected to occur about 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, September 30, 2021. Residents’ and businesses’ water service is expected to be impacted for approximately 4 hours, but it could last longer. When water service is restored, the system will be flushed. Households and businesses in the affected area can flush their systems with cold water for 15 minutes before use.
Any residents or businesses outside of the area that lose water service even though they are not listed in the above affected areas also should flush their systems with cold water for 15 minutes before use.
We apologize for any inconvenience this will cause residents and businesses. The disruption in water service will allow crews to make a much needed fix to broken valves with the existing water distribution system.
The City of Flint Water Department will work as quickly as possible to limit the disruption in service.
For more information, please contact the City of Flint Water Department at (810) 766-7202.
