A boil water advisory has been issued for a portion of a neighborhood in Battle Creek’s Level Park-Oak Park region.

The City says that as of Monday morning, residents on Morgan Ave from Sigel Ave. to Cedar Ave N, and on N Cedar from Morgan to Kellogg St, should boil their water for at least one minute before using it for drinking, making ice, food preparation and washing dishes.

These precautions are necessary because a portion of the water main was shut down to for improvements and repairs, and when that is done there is always a chance harmful bacteria can enter the system.

This advisory should remain in effect for at least 24 hours.
