UC water supply restored after three days

Water and food services have been restored at the Bovee University Center after being shut off for nearly three days. The water was originally cut off because of a suspected bacterial contamination.

"I've been here for 10 years and doing a chlorination (flush) on an existing system, that just doesn't happen very often," Steve Lawrence, associate vice president of Facilities Management, told Central Michigan Life on Thursday. "We're going to do everything we can to make sure it's safe."

University officials had to wait to test the water because they did not have the equipment readily available. Lawrence said the university was seeking counsel from the Isabella County Health Department on where they could send the water sample.

University Communications sent out an email Saturday, stating the water had been restored. Quizno's and Goodies to Go were open for normal business hours on Sunday.

Starbucks will be open at noon on Monday.
