The Boil Water Advisory for the City of Rochester has been lifted. The Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) has advised the City of Rochester that the results of the most recent water test samples indicate no bacterial contamination of the water system. Residents can return to consuming water as normal after completing precautionary measures.


Residents in this area should flush the water in their homes by doing the following:

  • Running an outside hose spigot for five (5) minutes
  • Running both the hot and cold water from all faucets for five minutes

Residents with refrigerators that dispense water through the door should also do the following:

  • Draw at least one gallon of water through the door
  • Throw away existing ice in the ice makers

Residents can look for information on this event at or by calling the City of Rochester Department of Public Works (DPW) at 248-651-5165.
