HAMBURG TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A precautionary boil-water advisory was issued Wednesday for Hamburg Township after a water main break.

The advisory has been lifted as of Sunday morning.

According to the Livingston Community Water Authority, the water system was shut down about 10 a.m. to repair a water main break. The water was off for about two hours.

The precautionary boil-water advisory was issued for 72 hours because the water pressure was taken down to zero pressure. The advisory only affects residents on the Livingston Community Water Authority system.

All water used for human consumption should be boiled for one minute and allowed to cool before using.

Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation until further notice.

Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
