Boil water advisory lifted for some Fenton businesses

Posted: Updated:

A boil water advisory has been lifted for some businesses in Fenton. 

The affected businesses were on Copper Avenue and Industrial Way. The boil advisory was initially ordered on Feb. 24 after an 8-inch water main valve on Copper Avenue was found broken on Thursday, Feb. 22.

City crews tried to make repairs without depressurizing the system but were unsuccessful because of the nature of the break.

On Friday, Feb. 23, crews had to shut down the water main to make repairs, which required all pipes in the area to lose water pressure.

The city of Fenton said because there was a risk for the water system to become contaminated when it loses pressure, public health officials advised the affected customers to boil their water until water tests are done.

Water tests passed all bacteriological sampling, the city said Monday.
