Boil water advisory lifted in city of Flint

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

The boil water advisory has been lifted for the city of Flint.

The advisory was issued after water main break.

Flint’s Director of Public Works, Rob Bincsik,  issued the boil filtered water advisory as a precaution.

It was in effect for people living near Avon and 8th Street, bordered on the south by I-69, north by Court Street, west by Lapeer Road, and east by Gilkey.

The advisory was lifted on Dec. 28.

"Once crews repaired the break, we worked to collect samples to test the water to ensure it was safe for residents to use without boiling first," Bincsik said. "We received the results this afternoon and they passed. I consulted with experts at the Department of Environmental Quality and we agree the precautionary boil filtered water advisory is no longer necessary."
