Please be advised that the City of Kalamazoo is currently investigating aesthetic water quality concerns in Texas Township. Yesterday, an errant vehicle struck a hydrant and a large portion of water main needed to be shut down to isolate the flow being released. A precautionary Boil Water Advisory was issued yesterday for many homes in the Colony Woods neighborhood, as well as a shutdown of service this morning to make repairs.
Today’s work focused on installing infrastructure needed to properly replace the hydrant connection, valves and appurtenances.
The City has received several reports of aesthetic water quality concerns following the repair work. They are in the process of establishing a flushing plan to resolve the situation. The Boil Water Advisory remains in effect through January 11th and the City is working continuously to resolve the situation.
