Some Fenton residents under boil water advisory

Posted: Updated:
GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A boil water advisory has been issued for parts of Fenton after a water main break.

Residents on Trealout, Fenton Commons and the Appletree Subdivision are being asked to boil their drinking or cooking water for at least the next 48 hours. That means you should vigorously boil water for five minutes before consuming it. If you can’t boil the water, use bottled water.

A six-inch water main on Trealout Street was discovered today and crews had to shut down the water main to make the repairs. That caused a pressure issue.

Because there is a risk for contaminants to siphon their way back into the water distribution system when that system loses pressure, public health officials are asking for people in that area to boil their water until tests can be performed. Those tests take at least 48 hours to complete.

Here is a complete list of those impacted: Trealout Street including Crestmont Care Center, Crestview Apartments, Trealout Apartments, Fenton Estates, as well as those on Fenton Commons, and the Appletree subdivision including the streets of Appletree, Swanee Beach, Orchard Lake and South Long Lake.

No other areas of Fenton are impacted.
