Boil water advisory lifted for Port Huron


Port Huron City officials are notifying residents south of the Black River they no longer need to boil water before use. Following a water main break Friday morning near Washington and 12th Avenue, nearly the entire southern half of Port Huron was advised to boil their water for at least one minute before drinking or preparing food. Even though the water main break was repaired late Friday, a period of at least 48 hours of water testing is required in order to help ensure bacteria is not present in the water supply. Just after midnight this morning, officials utilized the Wireless Emergency Alert system to notify the public the boil water advisory had been lifted. An estimated 16,000 residents and businesses were impacted over the weekend.
