LOWELL, Mich. (WZZM) -- The city of Lowell has issued a boil water advisory for about 50 homes in the North Hudson area.
City officials say a water main broke on Monday and since the water had to be shut off to repair the damage, bacteria may have gotten into the system. The city is advising people to boil their water for drinking, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation.
Officials from the DPW tell WZZM 13 homes on Lincoln Lake, Riverside, and North Hudson and a few surrounding side streets are affected. Everyone who is under the boil water advisory has received a knock on their door and a notice as well.
The city must conduct two tests before determining whether the water is safe to drink. The city hopes to receive the 'all clear' by Wednesday.
