STATEMENT: Update on Water Transmission Main Break – Schoolcraft and Middlebelt (Livonia)

On the evening of Thursday, February 22, 2018, GLWA experienced a break in a 48-inch water transmission main on Schoolcraft, just east of Middlebelt. GLWA crews have been on-site since just after the break last night. As of this morning, they have isolated the break and begun excavation to determine the number of pipe sections to be replaced. The Authority is ordering the replacement pipe today and should begin repairs tomorrow. Further updates will be shared as they become available.
