Update: The boil water order that was active in two heavily populated parts of Ontario County has been lifted. “All of the water sampling conducted for bacteriological tests are in compliance with City, State and Federal water quality standards. Your drinking water no longer needs to be boiled. Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly,” officials said on Sunday.
A water main break has led to a boil water advisory for some customers in the city and town of Canandaigua and the town of Hopewell.
The break happened at about 12:30 Friday afternoon between Jefferson Street and Ontario Street in the city of Canandaigua. The boil order affects customers east of Route 332 in Canandaigua and in the northwest part of Hopewell. Residents are advised to boil water for at least three minutes.
When the break is repaired, the water will be tested for bacteria until two consecutive samples come up clean.
