Work on water main to continue through next month


It will be another two weeks before a broken water distribution line will be operating normally. The Great Lakes Water Authority said that flushing and disinfecting of the 10-foot wide transmission main near Port Huron has been ongoing, but due to the size of the pipe, and the technical nature of the work, the line won’t be in normal operation until October 5th. The pipe ruptured in mid-August and forced a boil water advisory for nearly one million residents in southeastern Michigan. Some communities still have a ban on outdoor watering as a result of the break.
