PORTAGE, Mich. (WOOD) — A Sunday morning crash has prompted a boil water advisory in Portage.

Around 5:30 a.m., a fire hydrant at 5603 Oakland Dr. was hit by a vehicle, the city of Portage said. The water main was shut down leaving customers in the area of 5603 to 5811 Oakland Dr. without water.

On Monday, the city issued a boil water advisory for the area.

Everyone in the affected area should boil their water for two minutes before consuming it. It’s safe to bathe in the water without boiling it.

Water main breaks cause a drop in pressure, which can allow bacteria to enter the system. The boil water advisory is precautionary; no bacteria had been found in the system as of Monday.

Authorities say tests confirming the water’s safety should be back soon.

Customers that are impacted will receive a notice on their front door, the city said.

Anyone with questions is asked to call Veolia at 269.324.9235.

The city of Portage Department of Transportation & Utilities can be reached Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 269.329.4422.
