Water restored to East Court Street area after temporary service disruption

FLINT, Michigan—Water service was temporarily disrupted to some households in the College and Cultural Neighborhood today. 

A contractor working on the East Court Street rehabilitation project broke a valve. Repair work required that water at the main be temporarily shut off. Service has since been restored and no further precautionary measures are needed, according to the city’s Department of Public Works. 

Due to the pressure loss, there may be trapped air and loose sediment in your water lines. The air and sediment may be removed by flushing your water system.  Do not flush your water through a water filter.

The East Court Street rehabilitation project is installing a new water main and resurfacing Court Street between Crapo Street and Dort Highway. Only eastbound traffic is allowed. Westbound traffic is being detoured using Robert T. Longway Boulevard.
