PAW PAW, Mich. — A village-wide boil water advisory was issued in Paw Paw Monday.
Crews had been performing maintenance on the village's water tower which resulted in a drop in water pressure, leading to the advisory, according to Paw Paw Village Manager William Joseph.
Specifically, water pressure sensors inside the village wells delayed on noticing the water pressure, resulting in moments of water pressure being low, according to Joseph.
Over the next several days, village officials plan to sample local water to make sure that no contamination occurred, according Paw Paw Director of Public Services Tim Brandys in a release.
As of Monday, residents are asked to not drink water from faucets, but can use the water for bathing, Brandys said.
Residents are expected to be notified once it is determined that the water is safe to drink, according to Brandys.
The advisory remains in effect until Wednesday, Joseph said.
