Posted at 10:09 AM, Jan 11, 2023

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Residents of city of East Lansing and Meridian Township have been asked to conserve water.

The notice comes after one of the main transmission water lines at the East Lansing - Meridian Water & Sewer Authority plant was damaged Tuesday.

"Please note that the water is still sage to use/drink, ELMWSA is just asking for it to be conserved at this time," the notice said.

Safe drinking water is being supplied to the area by Lansing Board of Water & Light.

The utility service is hoping to lift the conservation notice within the next 24-48 hours after the broken water main is repaired.

Some of the things they are asking residents to do are:

  • Not take baths at this time
  • Limit showers (in frequency and duration) to the greatest extent possible
  • Wait to do laundry and dishes
  • Refrain from all other high uses of water
