Much of the City of Novi is under a Boil Water Advisory due to a loss of pressure experienced when @glwatermi was working to finalize its repairs from the October water main break along 14 Mile.

According to the notice, it is due to a loss of pressure that occurred during the repair of a Great Lakes Water Authority water main break.
“Whenever a water system loses pressure for any significant length of time, precautionary measures are recommended because a loss of pressure can lead to bacterial contamination in the water system,” reads the notice.
Water should be boiled before being used for drinking and cooking. Residents are advised to boil their water for at least one minute and allow to cool before using.
