Boil water advisory lifted in Battle Creek

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) — A boil water advisory issued for a portion of Battle Creek was lifted on Thursday morning.

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

The city said in the release that whenever pressure is reduced in the water system, it increases the potential for bacteria to taint the water, which generally isn’t harmful.

The following streets were included in the boil-water advisory which has since expired:

  • Meachem Avenue between Burr Street and Eldred Street
  • Burr Street between Meachem Avenue and Mccrea Drive
  • Bechman Avenue between Burnham Street and Burr Street
