PONTIAC, Mich. – The Oakland County Water Resource Commission tells Local 4 the City of Pontiac had a wide spread power failure this morning shortly after midnight that also effected the water pumps.

The water pressure throughout the system dropped by about 80% but because it never hit zero pounds per square inch a boil water advisory was not needed.

A spokesperson from the Oakland County Water Resource Commission tells Local 4 that once the power was restored they were able to restore the water pressure.
