After a water main break in Fenton, residents are issued a drinking water warning.

For those living in the city of Fenton, you are now under a boil water advisory. The city issued the warning yesterday stating that Fenton lost water pressure in all areas of the city north of Dauner Road and contamination may have occurred.

This drinking water warning is all due to a water main break that occurred yesterday in the parking lot of VG's Grocery on North Leroy Street. The repairs to the water main were completed at 4:30 pm on Sunday, February 14th, 2021.

Because of the drop in pressure in the Fenton water supply, it is possible that bacterial contamination may have occurred and corrective measures are being taken. This drinking water warning will remain in place until two consecutive test periods, 24 hours apart come back negative.

In the meantime, it is very important that residents DO NOT drink their water without boiling it first. To make sure it is safe, bring the water to a boil and let it boil for at least one minute. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and preparing food until the order is rescinded.

If you are looking for more information on the drinking water warning and boil water advisory, contact Stephen Guy at the Fenton water department at 810-614-1761 or email him at sguy@cityoffenton.org.

Be sure to pass this information on to any friends you may have in Fenton.
