A boil water advisory is now in effect for a portion of the City of Battle Creek.

The City says that residents on the affected streets should boil their water for at least a minute before using it for drinking, brushing teeth, washing dishes, food preparation or making ice, or you could just use bottled water.

These streets are seeing water shutoffs while the city does work to the water main, as a part of a large improvement project that’s been going on in recent weeks. Water main work causes a lowering in water pressure, which can introduce bacteria.

The Following Streets Are Under a Boil Water Advisory Until Further Notice: 

  • Hazel St. between Parkway Dr. and Baldwin Ave.
  • Northside Dr. between Hazel and Irving Park Dr.
  • Parkway Dr. between Washington Ave. Hazel

Boil Water Advisories typically last at least 24 hours, but can last longer.
