Village officials said the break has been repaired, water pressure restored and other remedial actions – such as flushing and collecting samples – has been completed.

Still, residents of Lake Point and Spring Lake condos and area businesses need to take precautionary measures until otherwise notified. Those included in this advisory are the following addresses on West Savidge Street: 507, 601, 801, 807, 813, 821, 823, 901, 903, 909, 915, 917, 951 and 971.

Barrett’s pool, docks and buildings are not served by the West Savidge water main and are not included in the advisory. The rest of Spring Lake Village is also not included in the advisory.

Occupants of the buildings noted should boil all water before drinking or using the water. Businesses using a soda fountain are not to use it until the advisory is lifted, officials said.

The possibility of bacteria being in the lines can happen when there is a loss of water pressure due to a break or leak. When the water pressure is down for a significant period of time, precautionary measures are recommended.

Maybe if the Village Council would run the local government instead of the Village Manager things would be in good shape. Not like our bike path, or local Village ordinances being enforced, oops except the no parking in your front yard. What about all the tall grass in abandoned factories, or lots, and not to mention the beautiful flowers that once were at the entrance to the bike path in the Village. But then I guess the Managers friend who she hired to replace the reliable and devoted employee that use to manage the DPW for the Village. Come on Council do your job and bring the Village back to it beautiful and welcoming environment...
