Boil filtered water advisory lifted for Flint residents affected
Rob Bincsik, City of Flint Director of Public Works says water main break near Avon and East 8th Street in Flint have been repaired and the precautionary boil filtered water advisory lifted for Flint residents affected.
“Once crews repaired the break, we worked to collect samples to test the water to ensure it was safe for residents to use without boiling first," said Bincsik. “We received the results this afternoon and they passed. I consulted with experts at the Department of Environmental Quality and we agree the precautionary boil filtered water advisory is no longer necessary.”
