Some Berrien County residents advised to boil water


Benton Harbor and Berrien County EMA have issued a precautionary boil order for portions of Benton Charter and Hagar Township water systems that use City of Benton Harbor water.

Customers north of Klock Road and west of the CSX railroad are advised to boil their water for at least 5 minutes before drinking or using for cooking.

Crews say a water main break near the intersection of Paw Paw Avenue and Riverside Road resulted in a loss of pressure for customers in that area. The break was isolated within an hour. Crews have been flushing and testing the system, but say a boil water notice must be in effect until the tests are all clear.
