Boil-water order lifted for Fredonia users

The Chautauqua County Health Department, in conjunction with Fredonia, has lifted the boil-water order for all village water customers, including those within the town of Pomfret.

Turbidity in the distribution system has returned to acceptable levels and two consecutive days of testing indicate that the water throughout the distribution system is safe for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, making coffee.

All plumbing lines that have not been used regularly since the boil water went into effect should be flushed before water from that line is consumed. This includes ice makers and refrigerator water dispensers.

Fredonia’s boil-water order was issued on Wednesday. It was the fourth such order in 14 months for users.
