READOakland County water emergency sparks mad dash to stock up on water

A boil water advisory was issued for 12 communities in Oakland County due to a water main break in Farmington Hills. More than 250,000 residents were affected, and around 51,000 were without water completely.

The pipe needed to repair the water main arrived Wednesday morning, but the water must be tested for 48 hours after the repair, so Friday is the earliest that water could be safely used without being boiled.
