Livonia is still under a boil water alert, officials say.

City officials stress the measure is only a precaution. Previously, the city of Redford was also under a boil water alert, but that has since been lifted.

The Livonia Public Schools district will close schools due to the advisory. 

While officials say they are still assessing the situation, the alert may be related to a series of water main breaks in the city.

The breaks are located in the area of Schoolcraft and Middlebelt and Schoolcraft and Stark.

MDOT has closed eastbound I-96 at Middlebelt because of water from the water main break.

Water from one of the water main breaks was also pouring onto eastbound I-96, closing the freeway for a short time. The road has since reopened.
