Last night, parts of nearby Parchment were placed under a boil water advisory while the city of Parchment repairs a water main break on 20th Street, according to MLive. This led to a temporary period of water being shut off, loss of water pressure and the eventual  water boil advisory for some area residents issued by the city of Kalamazoo. No tests taken found traces of bacteria have been found yet. It is expected that the advisory should be lifted within about 72 hours, on November 9th. The following areas are affected by the advisory:

  • 20th Street - From McKinley Street (northern boundary) to just north of Colby Avenue, both sides of street;
  • McKinley Street - From 20th Street (western boundary) to eastern extent of Parchment water system (between 21st Street and Polk Street), both sides of street;
  • Roosevelt Avenue - From 20th Street (western boundary) to the eastern extent of Parchment water system, both sides of street.
