KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — A boil water advisory prompted by a water main break in Kalamazoo on Friday has been lifted.

City officials lifted the restrictions at 8 p.m. Sunday after bacteriological testing in the affected area confirmed the water is safe to drink.

The advisory was in affect for Whites Road from Duke Street to South Westnedge Avenue, the city of Kalamazoo. It included the northeast and southeast corners of Whites Road and Duke Street, but did not include the northwest and southwest corners of South Westnedge Avenue and Whites Road.

Water main breaks cause a drop in pressure, which can allow bacteria to enter the system. The boil water advisory was precautionary.
