No boil water advisory for City of Flint, thanks to secondary water source

“Thanks to the completion of the secondary GCDC pipeline, our water quality is not affected by the GLWA’s major break this morning,” Mayor Neeley said. “My administration has worked diligently over the past two years to ensure that Flint’s water system is protected from malfunctions like these that otherwise would have affected water quality. I want to reassure residents that our city woke up this morning to safe water, with sound and thoughtfully planned infrastructure.”
