[ARCHIVED] Potential Contamination of Water Supply in Larkin and Mills Townships

Due to a broken water main in Larkin Township, a loss of pressure in the water systems for Larkin and Mills townships could potentially result in the contamination of the water supply in those townships. The incident occurred on today when a contractor working on construction activities accidentally struck a Larkin water main.

As a precautionary measure, all customers in Larkin and Mills townships are advised to boil water that will be used for drinking or cooking. The water should be boiled for at least five minutes, and allowed to cool in a covered container. Bottled water may be used as an alternative to boiling.

Crews are in the process of repairing the break. Water service is expected to be returned by Midnight tonight.

Following return of water service, water is likely to be discolored and containing air. Home plumbing should be flushed until the water runs clear. Continue boiling water for drinking and cooking purposes until notified by the City of Midland.

If you have questions, call the Midland Water Treatment Plant at 989-837-3515.
