Battle Creek under boil water advisory

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) – The City of Battle Creek is telling some residents to boil their water before using it for consumption.

The advisory was issued after the city shut down a portion of its water system for improvements and repairs, according to a release.

The area currently under this boil water advisory includes the following areas:

  • Kellogg from Bedford to Broadway
  • Taylor from Geneva to Sigel
  • Morgan Avenue from Geiger to Cedar
  • Mosher from Sigel to Broadway
  • Broadway from Kellogg to Mosher
