KALAMAZOO, MI — Kalamazoo city officials are advising residents in the area of East Cork Street to boil their tap water before drinking.

The affected area is on East Cork Street from Fulford Street to the west to Konkle Street to the east.

City crews responded to a water main break, which caused a pressure loss within the water main.

Residents there should boil their tap water for two minutes before drinking. No precautions need to be taken for water used for personal hygiene.

City officials say the advisory is precautionary only, and there have been no confirmed tests showing bacteria present in the water main. The advisory is expected to last up to 72 hours. Preliminary sampling results will be available within 24 hours and final results will be available within 48 hours.
