Boil water alert issued for Huron Township following large water main break

Alert applies to the entire township

DETROIT – A boil water alert was issued for Huron Township on Sunday following a large water main break, according to the Huron Township Police Department.

Update: Huron School District closed Monday due to water main break

“Due to a very large water main break Huron Charter Township is issuing a temporary boil water alert for the entire township. We do not believe the water pressure dropped to a dangerous level, however we are airing on the side of caution until the repair is made and we can properly flush the system to ensure the safety of our water customers. Once the proper testing is completed we will lift the boil water alert,” read a statement from the HTPD.

Officials said Monday that water would be tested at 11 test sites on Tuesday and again 24 hours later on Wednesday. The township will lift the boil water advisory once they receive a second clear sample, officials said.
