July 15, 2009 IMLAY CITY — A boil water advisory issued Wednesday afternoon for city water users has been lifted.
The decision was made at around 10 p.m. Thursday, after 24-hour sample testings verified that all drinking water is safe.
As a result, it is no longer ncessary for residents and business owners to use boiled or bottled water.
The advisory was put into effect at 2 p.m. Wednesday, when city workers accidentally struck a water main on Blacks Corners Road, in preparation for an upcoming road safety project.
While water is safe to drink again, city officials point out that the basic recovery process includes flushing pipes, faucets and drinking fountains for at least five minutes.
Before serving or using water, food establishments must follow the instructions in the Emergency Action Plans for Retail Food Establishments guide. They can be found at www.michigan.gov/michiganprepares.
