GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The city of Green Bay is lifting a boil water advisory for residents on the East side after a major water main break on Saturday morning.
At least a million gallons of water shot up into the air along E Mason Street near the Main Street intersection.
The 36 inch pipe that burst is one of the two major water mains that bring in water from Lake Michigan.
A boil advisory of issued because of concerns about water quality. Safe water samples came back this Monday afternoon.
Green Bay Water Utility general manager Bill Nabak says the drop in water pressure led to concerns about contamination.
Nabak says the last time the city issued a boil-water advisory was around 40-years ago. But that was because of an error in sampling and Nabak says you just don't take chances with something like this.
