Ishpeming Boil Water Advisory

We have more information for you about the water main break affecting a small section of Ishpeming.

That section is now under a boil water advisory.

The affected area includes all of Cliff street and the portion of Lakeshore Drive between Euclid Street and US–41.

The advisory is in effect until 48 hours after service is restored, or midnight Wednesday night, whichever comes first.

If you live in that area, the Ishpeming DPW is asking you to boil any water you plan to drink or cook with for several minutes first.

The break happened shortly before 4 Sunday afternoon in front of 129 Cliff Street.

The water main is located on top of some bedrock, and the bedrock shifted slightly, rupturing the pipeline.

City officials say water service should be back to normal sometime tonight, but the boil water advisory is in place as a precaution.

If you have any questions, you can reach the Ishpeming DPW at 486–9371.
