Update: DWSD and GLWA lift boil water advisory

Effective immediately, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) and the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) have lifted the boil water advisory for customers who were affected by low-water pressure as a result of the 42-inch water main break near McDougall and Larned on Saturday night. The areas which were affected by the advisory were: John C. Lodge Service Drive (West), Mt. Elliot (East), I-75 Fisher Freeway (North) and Detroit River (South).

After a Boil Water Advisory is lifted, certain steps are recommended before the regular use of water. The following are checklists for different water-use situations.
