Livonia residents advised to boil tap water before using.
LIVONIA, MI – A boil-water advisory remains in effect in the city of Livonia and some neighboring communities.
"Water pressure was maintained throughout most of the city and no contamination is known to be present in the water system," according to the alert issued at 3:39 p.m. Sunday.
Until the advisory has been lifted, the city advises residents not to drink their tap water without boiling it first.
"Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice.
Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water."
According to the city, water samples from locations throughout the community are being tested to confirm that no bacterial contamination is present.
As a further precaution, sampling will be repeated a second time 24 hours later, which is why a boil water advisory is expected to remain in effect until Tuesday, June 13.
Updates are expected to be communicated through social media and the city website.
Livonia residents and businesses are encouraged to sign up for Nixle emergency alerts.
