exclamation Orion Township and the Village of Lake Orion residents DO NOT need to boil water due to the water main break in Port Huron. However, we have instituted an OUTDOOR WATERING RESTRICTION until further notice. Please turn off outdoor irrigation systems until further notice. Visit GLWA's website for more information on the water main break and repair efforts.
