FLINT, Michigan — In order to conduct valve replacement with the water distribution system, water service will be shut off to some nearby residents on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 and a boil water advisory is NOT currently in effect.
The areas that are expected to be impacted on Wednesday, October 13, 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 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, October 13, 2021. Water service for residents and businesses is expected to be impacted for approximately five hours, but it could last longer. Fire hydrants in the area will also be affected. 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 resident or business 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.
