A water main break along Briar Hill Road near Westwood Parkway has caused a boil water advisory for some Flint residents.

People living in neighborhoods south of Miller Road and east of Ballenger Highway have been told to boil their water until further notice. The streets affected are Westwood Parkway, Briar Hill Road, Colchester Road, Parkside Drive, Overhill Drive, Crooked Lane, Hawthorne Avenue and Hampden Road.

Reports are that bacterial contamination may have occurred in the water system due to a loss of pressure after the water main break that occurred overnight. Residents in the area with with advisory should  filter their water and boil it before cooking, making ice drinking, washing dishes, and brushing teeth.

Crews are currently working to resolve the situation, but if you need more information contact The City of Flint Water Department at (810) 766-7202.
