City of Troy Boil Water Advisory Lifted
The Boil Water Advisory for the City of Troy is no longer in effect based on the results from the necessary water quality tests. The water is safe for regular consumption and is no longer necessary to boil water.

On April 10, 2024, a malfunction occurred in the Great Lakes Water Authority system, which caused water pressure to drop below 20 psi. Due to the short period of depressurization, the City is issuing a precautionary Boil Water Advisory for the areas between Crooks and Adams/ South Blvd. and Square Lake. In this circumstance, the City cannot guarantee the quality of the drinking water until the system's water testing has been completed; this will take 48 hours. An advisory does not mean that the water is contaminated but that there is a chance contamination has occurred.
