Hancock issues boil water advisory

HANCOCK, MI— A boil water advisory is in effect Monday for the city of Hancock and the Quincy Hill area of Franklin Township.

A water main broke in Adams Township Friday night, prompting a boil advisory for Atlantic Mine and Portage Township.

Hancock’s city manager says the city has been using water reserves from its bulk storage tank over the weekend. Capacity has diminished and the city will start getting its water Monday from Adams Township.

Water used in cooking, making ice, brushing teeth or that is meant for consumption should be brought to a boil for one minute and then allowed to cool.

The water main has been repaired but officials say test results on the water have not yet come back.
