The City of Northville, in consultation with the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), lifted the boil water advisory for homes, schools and businesses in the city effective, 1 p.m. today, Thursday, February 22, 2018.
With boil water advisory lifted and normal water service restored in the city, those Northville schools impacted by the advisory – Amerman Elementary School, the Cooke Center Program, Hillside Middle School, Main Street School/Board of Education Offices, and our Transportation facility – have returned to normal water service and usage. In addition, school will resume tomorrow, Friday, February 23, 2018, for our Cooke School students and staff.
In the notice posted on the city’s website lifting the boil water advisory, the city noted the following: “Because the city’s water is supplied by two different GLWA supply lines, the water pressure on the city’s system was able to be maintained. The GLWA supply line being repaired was able to be isolated from the city’s water system, and there was no risk to the city’s water system. Repairs are ongoing but should not impact the water supply system. However, until GLWA completes the repairs, there is a possibility of interruption to the water supply.”
School district officials will continue to monitor the situation, in consultation with the City of Northville and GLWA, until the repairs have been completed and will notify school families in the event of any change. For additional information and updates, visit the City of Northville website.
Our sincere appreciation to the students, teachers and staff in the affected buildings who rallied to make the best of the situation and to our Food Service and Operations staff for ensuring that drinking fountains were covered, signs posted, and bottled water available.
