The Lansing Board of Water & Light will be shutting off water to apartment residents in Bath Township tonight, Monday, December 5 to make repairs following a water main break. The repair work will begin around midnight to reduce disruption and inconvenience to customers and is expected to take around three hours.
The break occurred off Chandler Road, near Hunsaker and State Road, around 9:30am this morning. The apartment complexes impacted in the work include the Rocks Apartments, the Landings at Chandler Crossings, the Club at Chandler Crossings, the Village at Chandler Crossings, Block 36, Hunters Ridge Apartments and the Cottages in East Lansing.
The BWL has reached out to the apartment complex’s management companies to further alert tenants of the work. If customers have questions, please contact the water department at 702-6490.
Customers who see discolored water should wait until repair work is finished, then run cold water at the kitchen sink about the size of a pencil stream until it runs clear, which can take 10-15 minutes. During the time of work, the water is still safe to use even if pressure is low.
Underground pressure can affect water pipes, sometimes causing them to break. The Lansing Board of Water & Light is prepared to respond to any water main breaks within its service territory. The BWL regrets any inconvenience this may have caused.
