Battle Creek residents, in the area of North Avenue, may want to plan ahead for water shut-offs next weekend.

Public Works crews will be replacing water valves next weekend. This work requires two overnight water shutoffs next week, 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. Friday night, July 23, and Saturday night, July 24. City neighbors in these areas should be prepared to be without water and for a potential boil water advisory when service returns.
