COOPERSVILLE, Mich. — A boil water advisory has been lifted after being issued for the entire city of Coopersville, city officials tell us, saying repairs were completed much sooner than expected.

The City explains that a drop in pressure in Coopersville’s water may have led to bacterial contamination.

Officials briefly advised residents to boil water for a full minute and allow the water to cool before consumption or use until the advisory was lifted less than three hours after it was issued.

The advisory was a precautionary measure following a leak in the main transmission under 60th Avenue, according to the City of Coopersville.

Superintendent Matt Spencer says Coopersville Area Public Schools will be closed Thursday, May 20 to ensure the water is safe to drink.
