WEST BLOOMFIELD TWP., Mich. (WXYZ) — UPDATE: Police said on Friday afternoon the boil water advisory had been lifted.

A boil water advisory has been issued Wednesday for residents and businesses in West Bloomfield Township.

The specific affected areas are East of Hiller and North of Greer roads. Additionally, Wellington Woods #1 and #2, Wellington Meadows and Woodlands of West Bloomfield subs are listed on the list of affected areas.

The areas have lost water pressures less than 20 P.S.I., according to a media release. Repair crews are now working on the water system to resolve the issue.

Officials say the advisory will remain in effect until further notice.

As this is being resolved, residents and businesses in the area may experience lower than normal water pressure, have no water at all or experience a discoloration of water from the tap.

Officials add that because the extent of damage is unknown at this time, it will likely take a few days to fix the issue.

"Due to the unknown extent of the current problematic West Bloomfield water transmission main failure, repairing this problem and placing public water back into service and removing a Boil Water Advisory, it's estimated to take at least three days in duration in order to place these affected areas of the water system of West Bloomfield into a no boil status," a release states.
