KALAMAZOO, Mich. — A Kalamazoo water main break has prompted a boil water advisory near West Main Avenue between Wealthy Street and Coolidge Avenue. The advisory stretches on both the north and south sides of West Main Avenue. Cloisters Condominiums are currently not being affected.
The advisory is precautionary only as no tests have confirmed bacteria present in the water, although the city advises to take measures as suggested while the infrastructure is repaired. In the meantime, traffic has been reduced to one lane for both east and westbound lanes due to the main break. Lane closures are currently expected to go until March 26.
The advisory, on the other hand, is expected to be lifted within 72 hours, ending on March 20. The city will release information as it becomes available. Until then, it is safe to assume the boil water advisory is still in effect.
