FLINT, Mich. - Officials from the City of Flint Department of Public Works have fixed a minor valve on the secondary water pipeline.

The valve is now calibrated and operation to start 95-5 water increments.

Due to supply chain issues that have impacted delivery of chemical feed building components, the City amended the timeline for Phase V (incremental water combining/blending to 100 percent for the secondary GCDC secondary water pipeline) and returned to Phase III (50 percent to the GCDC secondary water pipeline and 50 percent to the GLWA primary water pipeline), which occurred on Monday, December 13, 2021.

Due to the City’s amended timeline for Phase V, the incremental water combining/blending to 100 percent for the secondary GCDC secondary water pipeline will be delayed at least one week (end of January 2022).

As the city awaits delivery of flange adapters, the temporary chemical feed phosphate pump will serve as back-up until the rebuilt pump arrives.

Monitoring results are posted on the EPA’s “Taking Action on Flint Water” website at www.michigan.gov/flintwater.
