Boil Water Advisory In St. Clair Shores

Residents in St. Clair Shores are being asked to boil water drinking water as a result of water pressure fluctuations.

A notice posted on the city’s website says “As a result of testing being done by the City of Detroit, there are fluctuations in water pressure throughout the city.  Corrections are in progress.  Until further notice, St Clair Shores is under a Boil Water Advisory.”

The notice says bacterial contamination may have occurred in the water system.

Residents should not drink water without boiling it first.  The health department says bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, let it cool before using or use bottled water.  Anyone using water to drink, make ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and preparing food should boil water until further notice.
