VILLAGE OF HUBBELL, Mich. (WLUC) - UPDATE: Upper Michigan Water has lifted the precautionary boil water advisory affecting the company’s customers in the Village of Hubbell that was issued on Friday morning following a main-break near the intersection of Highway M26 & East 10th Street.

According to company officials, boil advisories are issued as a precaution with a customer’s best interests in mind. It’s possible, but unlikely, bacteria could enter the water system when pressure in the line drops below 20 psi.

During the boil water advisory, the water company performs a series of tests to determine if the water meets regulatory drinking water standards. Results from water sampling performed on February 26 and 27 confirmed there was no contamination present in the distribution system.

Upper Michigan Water customers in the affected area no longer need to boil their tap water.
