Boil Water Alert Lifted

Huron Township Water Safe for Consumption


Huron Township, Mich. – “The boil water alert has been lifted in Huron Township and the water is deemed safe for residents to consume” James Lancaster, DPW Director announced today.

A boil water alert was issued  as a result of a water main break that occurred early Sunday morning October 10th.

At around 6:00 am on Sunday October 10th the police dispatch alerted the on-call water employee of a number of calls regarding a lack of water pressure within the Township.  The on-call person mobilized all available employees to attempt to locate the large water main break within the Township. 

The break was located at approximately 8:00 AM due to a call from a concerned citizen about an excessive amount of water in their backyard.  Due to the number of poor water pressure calls and consulting with the Township engineers, the decision was made to issue a precautionary low pressure boil water alert for the entire Township.

The DPW department enabled their emergency Response Plan which includes public notification through all the available channels such as Nixle, Facebook, news outlets, newspapers and radio stations.  

Once located, the break was isolated and normal pressure restored to a majority of the Township and the repairs on the broken main began.  Due to the extent of the break the repairs were not concluded until approximately 3:45 AM on Monday October 11th.

Once the entire Township had regained their water service the DPW department had to conduct extensive flushing of the water mains surrounding the break area and then umbrella out to ensure any stagnant water was clear from the system.  This process occurred on Monday October 11th.

After the flushing had concluded the Great Lakes Water Authority came in and took 11 samples from our routine sampling site all over the Township.  These samples are taken back to the lab and incubated for 18-24 hours to allow for any bacteria to grow. 

The first round of samples all came back negative for any bacteria.  The second round of samples that are required to be taken 24 hours after the first were then taken from the same 11 locations on Wednesday October 13th.  These samples must undergo the same 18–24-hour incubation period.

On October 14th at approximately 10 am GLWA contacted the Township with the results of the second set of water tests.  These tests were also negative for any bacteria.  With this second test the Township has satisfied all of the requirement to lift the boil water advisory effective immediately. 

The best practice for what to do now that the alert has been lifted can be found here: https://www.michigan.gov/documents/egle/egle-tou-dweh-WaterReconnectionActions_683801_7.pdf OR https://www.glwater.org/our-system/water-system/#collapse6 (Towards the bottom of the page)

Huron Township Supervisor David Glaab stated “the safety of our residents is our top priority. We appreciate the community’s patience and understanding as we took the necessary steps to restore our water service responsibly”.

 Glaab credits DPW Director Jim Lancaster and his crew with quickly and responsibly addressing the water main break and returning normal and safe water service to township residents.

Supervisor Glaab also is grateful to Blue Triton Brands, producers of Ice Mountain, for donating a semi-truck load of bottled water along with Kathy Carlton-Beh who organized our police, fire and DPW teams to assist in its distribution to the public.

“Ice Mountain was pleased to provide water to help the residents of New Boston impacted by the water main break. This donation kept with the company’s long history of donating water to those impacted by emergencies and disasters.”  Arlene Anderson-Vincent, CPG | Natural Resource Manager.
