Boil water advisory in effect for CMU, Mount Pleasant

Do not drink water from campus faucets, taps

| Author: Ari Harris

The City of Mount Pleasant has issued a boil water advisory that affects CMU and our surrounding community. This means boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and preparing food.

Campus will remain open for classes and regularly scheduled activities; however, while the advisory is in effect:

  • Do not drink water from faucets and taps on campus.
  • Bottled water will be provided to on-campus residents. Bottled water will be available for residential students in their residence hall lobby area.
  • Students who live off campus, faculty and staff should bring their own water to campus; bottled water will also be available for purchase in on-campus retail locations.
  • It is still safe to use tap water for showering, bathing and handwashing with hot water. Do not drink or ingest the water from the shower, bath or other faucets.

Athletic practices, registered student organization meetings and other campus activities may proceed as scheduled. The Student Activity Center remains open; however, the pool will be closed until further notice. Bottled water will be available for student-athletes and students using the SAC.

We continue to monitor this situation and will provide additional guidance throughout the weekend.
