A portion of Pittsfield Township’s water system temporarily lost water pressure due to a water main break on the north side of Packard Rd, just west of Carpenter Rd. Pittsfield Township is issuing a precautionary boil water advisory for all water intended for drinking or ingestion or any consumption uses within in the impacted area. The advisory is precautionary only; there have not been confirmed tests showing coliform bacteria present in the water supply system.
The impacted address are listed below and as identified on the attached map highlighted in red:
- 3939 Packard Road
- 3953 Packard Road
- 2990 Carpenter Road
- 3000 Carpenter Road
Municipal water customers in the affected area should use bottled water for consumptive purposes or boil their tap water for one minute prior to use for drinking or other ingestion.
Please call 734-822-3105 with any questions related to boiling tap water or any questions regarding the water system operation and current status of repair or visit www.Pittsfield-mi.gov.
Department staff are monitoring the system for pressure and quality and will continue to do so until the advisory is suspended.
The precautionary boil water notice will remain in effect until further notice.
West bound Packard, west of Carpenter will remain closed until utility crews have completed the repair. Lane restriction will be in place until removed pavement is replaced.
Nearby residents may experience fluctuations in water pressure during repair. While it is not possible to predict the exact completion time, we are working to make the repairs as soon as possible. We anticipate the repair to be complete and Packard open to traffic by Tuesday morning, December 12th. Seeking an alternative route is suggested.
