Residents in one of Detroit's largest suburbs have been told to boil their water for the next few days before they drink it.

Livonia has been hit with a variety of pipe and equipment failures. After 48 hours, the water will be tested to check for bacteria.

Assistant public works director Brian Wilson says the boil advisory is a precaution.

Livonia schools are closed Friday as a result of the water woes.

The city has a population of 94,000 people.
