Five-hour water shutoff planned for part of Flint on Wednesday
FLINT, Mich. (WJRT) - Part of Flint’s east side will be without water service for about five hours on Wednesday.
The Flint Water Department plans to pause service to an area east of Dort Highway, south of Carpenter Road and west to Boulevard Drive or the Flint River around 11:30 a.m. to replace broken valves in the distribution system.
Work is scheduled to last about five hours, but could last longer. City crews say they will work as quickly as possible to minimize the disruption for homes and businesses in the area.
A boil water advisory was not in place for the area on Tuesday. Residents and businesses who lose water service Wednesday should run their cold water for about 15 minutes after service is restored to flush the system.
Anyone with questions about the project should call the Flint Water Department at 810-766-7202.
