Update: Boil Water Advisory lifted in Westland
The mandatory Boil Water Advisory issued by the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) for a portion of the city of Westland (Cherry Hill to Michigan Avenue and Henry Ruff to Venoy) has been lifted, effective immediately. Testing has confirmed that the water is safe to consume and cook with and meets all Safe Drinking Water Act regulations.
GLWA took the precautionary measure of issuing the mandatory boil water advisory on the evening of Thursday, July 23, 2020, due to the loss of pressure in the water distribution system caused by an error made by Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) field service crews during pressure reducing valve replacement maintenance activities in the area. Whenever a water system loses pressure for any significant length of time, the precautionary measure of a boil water advisory is recommended.
