Boil-wa­ter ad­vi­sory is­sued for Detroit

Windsor Star - - CITY+REGION -

On the eve of the North Amer­i­can In­ter­na­tional Auto Show, a boil-wa­ter ad­vi­sory has been is­sued for down­town Detroit af­ter a wa­ter-main break. The area in­cludes ho­tels and Cobo Cen­ter, where the an­nual auto show is open­ing this week for news me­dia from around the world. Drink­ing foun­tains at the con­ven­tion hall were turned off Sun­day.

Ford Mo­tor Com­pany spokesman Mark Truby says, “The show goes on.”

No one should lose wa­ter ser­vice, but pres­sure could be low. In ad­di­tion, peo­ple should boil wa­ter be­fore drink­ing it or use bot­tled wa­ter. Gary Brown of the Detroit wa­ter depart­ment says the re­pair won’t take long, but the boil-wa­ter ad­vi­sory could last un­til Thurs­day. Brown says the wa­ter line be­longs to the Great Lakes Wa­ter Au­thor­ity, a re­gional wa­ter agency. The break oc­curred in a park­ing lot near King High School.
