Boil Water Advisory: Goguac Street, N 24th Street, Kirkwood Avenue

Starting Monday August 29, 2016 the City of Springfield has issued boil water advisory due to water main repairs that are happening in the adjacent area of the City of Battle Creek. The customers on the following streets in the City of Springfield are affected: Goguac Street between N 23rd Street and N 26th Street, N 24th Street from Goguac to Kirkwood Avenue and the south East corner of Kirkwood Avenue and N 24th Street. To see if your house or business is affected see the complete address list.

Water service will be interrupted starting at 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The city is requiring that these water customers boil any water before drinking it, using it for cooking or making ice. This is a precautionary measure, and officials say it may take several days before water is completely safe for consumption.  This advisory will be in effect until further notice.

Questions about this advisory should be directed to the city manager Nathan Henne at (269) 441-9271. For more information on Boil Water Advisories see the document provided by the City of Battle Creek.
