PORTAGE, Mich. (WOOD) — A boil water advisory issued for a few homes in Portage following a boil water advisory has been lifted.
The advisory was in effect for about a dozen homes in the 9100 block of S. Westnedge Avenue between Oakview and S. Shore drives. It was issued Friday and lifted Monday.
Water main breaks cause a drop in pressure, which can allow bacteria to enter the system. The boil water advisory was precautionary as tests confirmed there was no bacteria in the water. On Monday, city officials said tests showed the water met state standards.
