Boil Water Information

In addition to the information below, we encourage affected communities to reference the Oakland County Health Division's Boil Water Advisory page. Click to view current drinking water notifications.

During some water system repairs or replacements, the water system serving your neighborhood may have had a temporary loss of water pressure. Whenever a water system loses pressure, there is the potential for contaminants to enter they system. Potential health risks are minimized by boiling water before consumption.

Boil water advisories affecting fewer than 200 customers will not be posted on the website. In this instance a boil water notice will be hand delivered or attached to the front door of each affected service address.  

The water pressure at your home is determined by the elevation and the incoming pressure from the water source. Contact us at (248) 858-0958 or to determine the what pressure is expected.
