UNDATED (WOOD) – Residents in two West Michigan cities can return to regular water use after boil water advisories were lifted.

The boil-water advisories were issued in Newaygo and Battle Creek on Sunday and Tuesday, respectively.

The Newaygo city manager said multiple water tests showed the water was safe to drink and use on Wednesday, three days after an advisory was put into place due to a broken water main on East Street.

The boil-water advisory was also lifted Wednesday for a portion of Battle Creek after water samples showed no evidence of contaminants.

That advisory was issued after the city water system was shut down for repairs and officials said there was a potential for bacteria to enter into the water, city officials said.

The affected area included Parkway Drive from Hubbard Road to Plymouth Street, Jordan Street from Parkway Drive to Roseneath Avenue and the Parkway Manor Apartments.
