UPDATE: The boil water advisory on Miller Street in Seneca Falls has been lifted.
For those living on Miller St. in the town of Seneca Falls a boil water advisory is in effect due to a water main break.
Town officials said that around 8 a.m. on Tuesday there was a water main break. They said that due to the break there was an increased risk for harmful microbes to enter the water line.
“Harmful microbes in drinking water can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms and may pose a special health risk for infants, some elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems. But these symptoms are NOT just caused by microbes in drinking water, and may have other causes. If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you should seek medical advice,” officials said in a press release.
Once the water main is repaired and inspected water service will be turned back on the line. Boiling water will be necessary for the next 3-4 days.
