The city of Battle Creek has canceled a Boil Water Advisory for parts of the city.

The advisory was lifted at 8:58 a.m. Sunday. It originally was issued Friday, after the city shut down a portion of its water system for improvement and repairs, allowing the potential for bacteria in the municipal water system.

On Sunday morning, the city said it had determined that it was no longer necessary to use bottled water or to boil water before drinking or cooking. Follow-up sampling confirmed that there was no coliform bacteria present in the water supply.

The affected area included Webber Street between Meachem Avenue and South Washington Avenue, Burr Street between Boulder Street and Meachem Avenue, Boulder Street between Burr Street and Webber Street, and Meachem Avenue between Burr Street and West Goguac Street.

The city advised homeowners to boil water for a least a minute and allow it to cool before drinking it. The advisory was considered a precautionary measure to avoid anyone getting sick.

Water samples were taken to determine whether the water met the state drinking water standards. Once those results showed there was no bacteria, the advisory was lifted.
