'Boil Water' notice issued for Union Township

A loss in pressure in the Charter Township of Union Water System on River Road between Bamber Road and Deer Run Subdivision has occurred due to a water main break.

Bacterial contamination may have occurred in the water system in this area only. Residents and businesses, including food establishments along River Road between Bamber Road and just west of Deer Run Subdivision including north and south of River Road on Crawford Road, all of Fox Meadow Subdivision, and Windstone Drive are affected.

Bacteria are common throughout our environment and are not generally harmful. However,

Residents in this zone are strongly urged not to drink or serve water without boiling it first.

Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for five minutes, and let it cool before using, or used bottled water. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, coffee, pop or other beverages, and preparing food until further notice.

Food establishment operators should follow the instructions in the "Emergency Action Plans for Retail Food Establishments" guide. This document is available on the Michigan Department of Agriculture Web site at www.michigan.gov/michiganprepares.
