A boil water advisory issued for residents in Inkster, Westland, the northeast corner of Romulus, and the city of Wayne after a loss in water pressure on Friday has been lifted.

Great Lakes Water Authority officials announced on Sunday that the advisory issued on Friday has been lifted after testing confirmed that the water in the area is now safe to consume and cook with.

The advisory was issued due to possible bacterial contamination that may have occurred in the water system. Bacteria are generally not harmful and are common throughout our environment. GLWA stated on Sunday that the loss of pressure in the water distribution system was caused by an equipment malfunction, which the cause is now under investigation.

The GLWA had at least two rounds of conducted tests before deciding to lift the advisory.
