An 84 inch water main burst causing flooding near South Boulevard west of Dequindre by the Sanctuary Lake Golf Course around 3 a.m. Sunday – affecting service to three cities. [NOTICE AND MAP FROM CITY OF TROY]
The Great Lakes Water Authority says that it could be three to four days before the large break is repaired.
Amy Larsen, who lives in the Brooklyn subdivision near Dequindre, is using bottled water until she hears the all clear.
“You just don’t know what’s in it … I’m using bottled water for my dogs and I don’t want them outside to drink the water or anything like that … I use bottled water to brush my teeth,” she said.
Reports of damage to the road and a boil water advisory to much of the city’s west side; from Rochester to Adams roads between South Blvd and 14 Mile. The city is urging all residents to reduce water consumption to help the city maintain water pressure. [ALERT FROM ROCHESTER HILLS]
The Somerset Collection closed restaurants and food service establishments on North side Sunday due to the water main break – while Somerset Collection’s retail stores and restaurants remain open on the South side.
The cause of that water main break is still unknown.
