Boil water advisory lifted for all Brocton water customers

MAYVILLE — The Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services and the village of Brocton announced Thursday that the boil water order in effect since Monday for all customers served by the village of Brocton water supply is now lifted.

The affected area included the village of Brocton, all town of Portland water districts and the area of Pomfret west of Shorewood Country Club. Water samples collected on Tuesday and Wednesday from the affected areas show that the water is safe to drink and use for all other purposes.
