The Seneca Falls Water Department notified residents of a boil water notice, which went into effect after a water main break on State Route 89.
At approximately 6 p.m. on Tuesday, August 31 there was a compromising water main break in the town of Seneca Falls. Due to the main break – it increases the chances that untreated water and harmful microbes entered the water line.
Officials said in the notice that the boil water order will be necessary for the next 3-4 days. Testing will be completed for several days to determine when it’s safe.
Specific instructions for the boil water notice include bringing all tap water to a rolling boil for one minute- letting it cool before use.
Work is being completed to fix the water main break, officials said in an announcement.
