The City of Kalamazoo Department of Public Services is repairing a water main break near the intersection of Pleasant Avenue and Pembrook Street, City of Kalamazoo. A precautionary boil water advisory is being issued in cooperation with the Kalamazoo County Health and Community Services Department for all water intended for drinking within the affected area due to a pressure loss within the water main. The affected area is as follows:
Pleasant Avenue – North side and south side of street between Duke Street to the west and S. Westnedge Avenue to the east, including the Pleasant Avenue Apartments. The affected area does not include Pembrook Street.
This advisory is precautionary only; there have not been any confirmed tests showing bacteria present in the water main at the location of the break. Initial sampling results will be available within 24 hours of its collection and the final set within 48 hours. It is expected that the advisory will be lifted within 72 hours.
Municipal water customers in the affected area may boil their tap water for 2 minutes prior to use for drinking. No special precautionary measures are necessary for water used for personal hygiene.
