EAST LANSING, Mich. — The City of East Lansing, Meridian Township and the East Lansing-Meridian Water and Sewer Authority (ELMWSA) have lifted the notice to conserve water. ELMWSA customers can resume their normal water consumption.

A contractor was brought in from Wixom to make the emergency repair at the ELMWSA plant after one of the main transmission water lines at the plant was accidentally damaged during construction on Tuesday, January 10. This caused ELMWSA to not be able to supply water for the residents of the City of East Lansing and Meridian Township.

While this repair occurred, there was limited water supply provided by the Lansing Board of Water & Light. The water supply remained safe for consumption throughout. To avoid pressure loss in the system, it was important for ELMWSA customers to conserve water. The community’s patience was appreciated while this repair was made. 

For more information, please contact: Joel Martinez of the East Lansing – Meridian Water and Sewer Authority at (517) 337-7535 or jmartinez@elmwsa.com. You can also contact the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy Lansing Office at (517) 284-6700. The Water Plant State I.D. # is WSSN 01995
