MERIDIAN TWP. — Officials have issued a boil water advisory for East Lansing Meridian Water & Sewer Authority customers after a water supply main break Thursday morning.
The boil water advisory began Thursday morning and will continue until at least 10 a.m. Saturday as a precautionary measure after the main break was discovered at the northwest corner of Haslett Road and Park Lake Road, according to a township press release.
The break was isolated and is being repaired and customer water pressure is being restored, according to the release.
Residents should bring tap water to a rolling boil, boil it for one minute and cool before use, or they should use bottled water under the advisory.
Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and preparing food until further notice. Showering, laundry, cleaning and other non-consumption uses without boiling water is safe, according to the release.
The water will need to be tested before the boil water advisory can be lifted in accordance with the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy.
The East Lansing Police Department also issued an advisory shortly after 11:15 a.m. Thursday to avoid the Haslett Road and Park Lake Drive intersection until about 9:15 p.m. as there might be delayed traffic or road closures in the area.
