originally posted on August 6, 2016
BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – The City of Battle Creek has announced a boil water advisory for a portion of Morgan Avenue, Sigel Avenue and Taylor Avenue, after a system shutdown for improvements or repairs. The city announced Saturday morning that the advisory was in effect on the following roads:
On Morgan Avenue between Cedar Avenue and Sigel Avenue.
On Sigel Avenue between Morgan Avenue and Taylor Avenue.
On Taylor Avenue between Sigel Avenue and Geneva Avenue.
The advisory is in place because of low pressure in the system due to repairs, which offers the potential for bacteria to enter the system. It is advised that bacteria are generally not harmful, and are common throughout the environment, but as a precaution, the city is advising residents to boil water before using it for consumption.
We will let you know when the advisory is lifted.
