LAPEER, MI – Ever since August 13th, when the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) discovered a break in a 120-inch water transmission line, forcing thousands of homeowners and cities alike to boil their water, the residents of the City of Lapeer are expressing concerns on Facebook over water quality.
After the news broke, the City of Lapeer promptly switched on their well water source to maintain adequate pressure and clean water for residents. As of now, there is no indication that they are back on city water supply.
Residents who boiled their water, sourced from a city emergency well, are noticing a new residue/film appearing afterwords. The City of Lapeer has assured residents that the water is ‘100% clean and safe to drink’, however, some residents are not sure if that’s the case and have resorted to using bottled water.
Residents that claim to have reached out to the City of Lapeer water department say they have not gotten any calls back.
