Supervisor: Macomb Township Not Under Boil Water Advisory
Macomb Township has issued a complete outdoor watering ban in response to the water main break on 24 Mile Road in Shelby Township but is not under a boil water advisory at this time.
Contrary to some reports, Macomb Township is not one of the communities under a boil water advisory due to the broken water main at 24 Mile Road in Shelby Township.
Patch contacted Supervisor Mark Grabow at approximately 5 p.m. Tuesday to confirm the township was not under such an advisory, although the ban on outdoor watering remains in effect.
"Our water and sewer guys have been busting their tails all day to keep the water pressure up," Grabow said, adding that pressures have returned to approximately 45 pounds per square inch. "We are not in a boil water alert at all."
However, Macomb has issued a complete outdoor watering ban as a result of the break.
The Shelby Township Water Department continues to work to contain a 36-inch water main break that has flooded a portion of 24 Mile Road between Jewel and Schoenherr roads, as well as some surrounding roads.
Shelby Township Police Lt. Stan Muszynski said the break occurred just before noon Tuesday and water has flooded the roadway.
Macomb Township may experience low water pressure because of this break and has issued a complete outdoor water use ban until the repair can be made and the pressures returned to normal.
