The Chautauqua County Health Department has collaborated with the Village of Fredonia to lift the boil water order for all Village of Fredonia water customers. This decision comes after two consecutive days of sample results indicate that the water throughout the distribution system is safe for various purposes, including drinking, cooking and making ice.
The Health Department recommends flushing plumbing lines that have not been regularly used since the boil water went into effect, including ice makers and refrigerator water dispensers. Residents who have not been receiving regular updates and alerts regarding the boil water order are encouraged to sign up for the NY Alert system at alert.ny.gov/sign-ny-alert-0.
For more information on municipal water systems, residents can visit the New York State Department of Health website at www.health.ny.gov/environmental/water/drinking/. The Village of Fredonia can be reached at (716) 679-2307 and Chautauqua County Health Department permitted facilities can call the Health Department directly at (716) 753-4481. Press releases issued by Chautauqua County will be posted on the County website at chqgov.com/news.
