IOSCO COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A portion of the Huron Shores Regional Utility Authority water system has been shut down for repairs due to water main break.

Officials say because of a loss of pressure in this portion of the system, a potential exists for bacterial to enter the system.

Baldwin Township, the City of East Tawas, and the City of Tawas City are advising the public to boil water before using it for consumption. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water.

Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.

Officials say repairs to the system have been made and flushing of the system has been completed.

Baldwin Township, the City of East Tawas and the City of Tawas City will inform radio and television media when testing is completed and the advisory to boil your water is lifted. The City of Tawas Website stated that the advisory could remain in effect until Saturday.

For more information please call the HSRUA water treatment plant at 989-362-0050.
