(WXYZ) - A mandatory Boil Water Notice has been issued to Novi residents north of 12 Mile and east of East Lake Drive, Old Novi Road and Novi Road because of a water main break Wednesday afternoon.
The City of Novi says residents need to boil tap water for at least five minutes before using it for cooking and drinking purposes. If the water will be used to drink, they say it should be cooled in a sealed container.
The notice will remain in effect until results from bacteria testing conclude the water is safe to drink. The city anticipates the tests to be completed in a couple of days.
If you have questions, the city says you can contact the Department of Public Services at 248.735.5640 or 248.347.0454.
