FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 15, 2022

RE:  Update to GCDC-WWS Response to GLWA Pipeline Failure (August 15th – 4:00p.m.)

  •  GCDC-WWS continues to supply emergency water to the City of Flint and other Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) communities.
  • Rumors and misinformation circulating on social media stating the Genesee County Water System and KWA Pipeline have experienced a water main break are false.  The water main break occurred withing GLWA’s system.
  • Ther is no boil order for any Genesee County community.
  • The Genesee County Water System and KWA Pipeline are performing as designed in proviing secondary water supply to Flint and neighboring communities in Lapeer County.
  • The voluntary water conservation request for those on Genesee County water continues until further notice, in an effort to ensure adequate water supply to the City of Flint and other GLWA water consumers.
  • Residents are asked to consider limiting high water usage activities usch as watering lawns, using sprinkler systems, wash down cars and buildings, flushing gutters, etc…  This effort remains in place to assist our neighboring GLWA communities as they await repair of their broken water main.

 

Fire Departments Receive Canned Emergency Drinking Water Donation from Anheuser-Busch

Thanks to this water donation from Anheuser-Busch, Fabiano Brothers and the National Volunteer Fire Council, we have the resources to keep our firefighters hydrated and ready to respond.  Genesee Township Fire Departments recently received a donation of canned emergency drinking water from leading brewer, Anheuser-Busch, to help provide critical hydration to it’s responders during this year’s wildfire season.  On July 8, 2022, Fabiano Brothers, a local Anheuser-Busch wholesaler partner, dropped off a pallet of water to the departments to help support it’s wildfire and large incident response needs.  Maintaining firefighters’ hydration during long incidents or disasters such as wildfires is a major safety concern for many departments.

The water was donated by Anheuser-Busch through a partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC).  Anheuser-Busch has a longstanding tradition of providing emergency drinking water and supplies for disaster relief efforts. The company periodically pauses beer production each year to apply its production and logistics expertise to can clean, safe drinking water that is ready to distribute when disaster strikes.  Since 1988, the brewer has donated more than 90 million cans of emergency drinking water to communities impacted by natural disasters and other crises.

Building on this commitment, the brewer teamed up with NVFC-the leading nonprofit membership association representing the interests of the volunteer fire, emergency medical, and rescue services-in 2019 to provide emergency drinking water to help firefighters stay hydrated and healthy when responding to wildfires and large incidents.  To date, the program has donated nearly 4.9 million cans of water to volunteer firefighters across the country.
