Water system work could mean water loss, boil water advisory

Some Saginaw County residents may have to boil their water before cooking their Thanksgiving meal.
Richland Township officials are working on the water main system, and that could cause water in certain sections of the township to be without water for part of Nov. 21 and Nov. 22.
Officials said that once the water is turned back on, the area will be under a “Notice to Boil Water” until it can be cleared and tested.
Officials said because of the water main lowering, there could be a loss of water pressure.
Whenever a water system loses pressure for a significant amount of times, precautions must be taken.
The impacted area includes: Wilson Street – Cherry to N. Pine and N. Maple from Thomas North to the Dead end including Ault Street and the middle school.
The township says this impacts about 30 residents.
