Riverview under citywide boil water order

RIVERVIEW, Mich. – The city of Riverview is under a boil water order until further notice while it experiences a water shutoff.

Here’s a statement from the city:

“The city is currently experiencing a city-wide water shutoff from GLWA due to a valve replacement project. GLWA assured us that we would still receive water from a bypass source during this time. We are working with GLWA to get the water turned back on.”

Riverview police said the city is under a boil water order until further notice.

“Ensuring water quality and service levels are top priorities for GLWA. On Monday, July 6 while field service crews were trying to isolate a section of water transmission main to install a new pressure reducing valve in Riverview, they inadvertently closed two valves causing pressure to drop below 20 psi. Water service is restored however this caused the city of Riverview to need to issue a boil water advisory. It is expected that this boil water advisory will last 48 hours so that sampling can be done to ensure water quality. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes those impactedK,” said GLWA Chief Public Affairs Officer Michelle Zdrodowski.
