GLWA to Fix Low Water Pressure Issue in Township’s Northeast Neighborhoods
Posted on 07/21/2021
Low Water Pressure Residents in the northeast part of the Township (Silver Spring Drive, east of Northville Road to I-275, and Six Mile Road north) may be experiencing low water pressure today. Township staff received low pressure alarms this morning beginning at 4:30 am. The Township contacted the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) regarding the issue, and we were notified that GLWA’s Newburgh Pump Station lost power due to the storms last night. Township Water Department staff reacted quickly, and opened valves from other pressure districts to feed this area. 

Pressures in the district may remain low until GLWA is able to make the proper repairs. Additionally, customers may experience some sediment in their water. If you notice this, please flush your system for several minutes through a non-aerated faucet such as your bathtub. GLWA staff is currently performing water tests to ensure drinking water quality has been maintained. Due to minimum pressures being maintained, a boil water warning has NOT been issued. Please stay posted for additional updates. Please also sign up for Nixle, an urgent messaging system to notify residents of emergencies, like boil water alerts, traffic advisories, missing persons, severe weather and more. To use Nixle, download the app or text your zip code to 888777.
