The City of Big Rapids has issued a 'Boil Water Advisory' for a minimum of 48 hours due to a loss of water pressure in the city.
The affected area includes those north of Woodward Avenue, north of Chestnut Street and north of Cypress Street.
Officials say a loss of water pressure creates a likelihood of bacteria contamination, so they are advising residents to boil their water as city workers flush the water system and bacteria samples.
Officials are advising residents in Big Rapids NOT TO DRINK WATER BEFORE BOILING.
