FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Seven suburban Detroit communities are expected to remain under a boil water advisory through Sunday following this week’s water main break.

The Great Lakes Water Authority gave the update Friday as it announced that the advisory for Bloomfield Township and Keego Harbor had been lifted following water testing. Advisories were lifted Thursday for Rochester Hills and Oakland Township.

Crews this week installed new sections of a broken 48-inch (122-centimeter) line that prompted a boil water advisory for about a dozen Oakland County communities.

Officials have said more than 300,000 people have been affected by Monday’s break in Farmington Hills.

Communities still under the boil water advisory include Commerce Township, part of Farmington Hills, Orchard Lake Village, Walled Lake, West Bloomfield Township, Wixom and part of Novi.
