Statement: Pressure loss in Oakland County impacting Commerce Township, Novi and Walled Lake

January 11, 2022

During the course of the Great Lakes Water Authority’s work to return its 48-inch water transmission main along 14 Mile Road in Oakland County back to normal service, a leak occurred which caused pressures to drop in the regional system, resulting in the issuance of precautionary Boil Water Advisories for the communities of Commerce Township, Novi and Walled Lake.

GLWA has isolated the leak and is in the process of draining the excavated work site in order to investigate its cause and implement a repair.

More information will be shared as it becomes available.
