Boil water advisory issued for Fredonia, Pomfret

Another water main break in the village of Fredonia has led to a boil-water advisory until further notice.

Village officials announced the action this morning following the 4 a.m. break on Castile Heights. The village lost plenty of water and is in the process of receiving some water from the city of Dunkirk.

Water pressure problems apparently continue to be a major issue in the village. The break around Castile Heights is the second this week and 10th in the last two weeks. What’s more problematic is the system continues to be compromised and weather conditions are ideal — not freezing temperatures.

Besides Fredonia crews working on the break, Dunkirk crews also assisted in the effort.

Here was the advisory for Fredonia users: “An advisory has been issued urging Village (of Fredonia) and town (of Pomfret) residents to boil their drinking water until further notice as a precaution, because of a large water main break early this morning. The break has been located and the plant is working to capacity again but this is a precaution we must take.”
