City of Benton Harbor Water Main Break Repaired, Use of Bottled Water to Continue
Waters service restored, residents encouraged to flush pipes, keep using bottled water
(Benton Harbor, Michigan) — The break in the City of Benton Harbor’s water main has been repaired and water is being reintroduced to the city’s pipes this afternoon, but residents are still encouraged to use bottled water for cooking, drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, rinsing foods, and mixing powdered infant formula according to state and local officials. The city will continue to be under a bottled water advisory out of an abundance of caution to
reduce their risk for lead even after water services is restored.
