Bay County Declares State Of Emergency After A Water Main Break UPDATE


A water main break in bay county has caused such a water shortage that they have declared a state of emergency.

County officials noticed the leakage over the weekend, but still have not been able to find the source of the break.

In a press release, officials say the emergency will remain in effect until the leak has been identified, and the water use emergency has been lifted.  Crews have been searching all weekend long for the break, which is draining as much as 10 million gallons per day.

The Public Works Water Distribution Department released this statement Sunday:

“All use of water for purposes other than maintenance of public health and safety shall be prohibited. Residential water use shall be limited to the amount necessary to sustain life through drinking, food preparation, and personal hygiene.”

The ban applies to the majority of Bay County. More specifically all residents who receive water from the City of Bay City Water Treatment Plant. Consumers are encouraged to conserve as much water as possible while crews work to find the source of the problem.

If residents notice an abnormal water flow, they are asked to call 989-686-8300.

UPDATE: The lead has been found, and crews are starting to fix it, but still encourage you to call the number listed above if you find another potential problem.
