A boil water alert has been issued for all of Huron Township following a very large water main break that has occurred.

The following is a statement from Huron Township DPW:

“Due to a very large water main break Huron Charter Township is issuing a temporary boil water alert for the entire Township. We do not believe the water pressure dropped to a dangerous level, however we are airing on the side of caution until the repair is made and we can properly flush the system to ensure the safety of our water customers. Once the proper testing is completed we will lift the boil water alert. More information will be forthcoming. We will be providing information via Nixle and Facebook as the situation develops. Thank you for your patience and understanding,”

    Mr Bolthouse, the phrase is “erring on the side of caution” and it means “if we are mistaken, we prefer to be on the cautious, rather than the reckless, side of the error.” I realize that you and your team are busy at present, but people still look to the printed word of officials as a precedent. The simple mistakes of today are the gateway to the ignorance of tomorrow.

      That is a quote from Huron DPW (as the article states). It is not a quote from me, the reporter/editor of this news website. Hence the reason for the quotations and the attribution at the end of the statement. Your comment makes it sound like it’s my own statement. Please re-read. Thank you.

      Scott’s writing is beyond reproach. If you want to be the word, police check out the mainstream online news outlets like NBC, CNN etc. Do not even get me started on sports writers. Cheers!

      Scott’s work is beyond reproach. NBC, CNN and the other online news outlets could use your word policing. Forget about sports writers. Cheer!
