Boil water advisory issued for areas of Kalamazoo, Milwood Elementary
KALAMAZOO, Mich. —
A boil water advisory is in effect in some areas of Kalamazoo after a water main break.
The area impacted is near Lovers Lane and Cork Street and includes Milwood Elementary School.
The city of Kalamazoo said the water main break is causing a temporary loss in pressure so they are issuing a boil water advisory as a precaution.
Officials say all water that you plan to drink or use in cooking should be boiled. They recommend you drink bottled water when possible. Water used for personal hygiene is okay to use.
Kalamazoo officials said the boil water advisory is only precautionary and there have not been any confirmed tests showing bacteria in the water. They will begin testing and expect to lift the advisory within 72 hours (March 15).
