The Village of Interlaken lifted its water conservation order on Monday, June 6.
The Seneca County Health Department issued the order on Wednesday, June 1 after electrical issues caused the village’s water pumps to stop working.
Electrical issue addressed, normal water levels restored
“This order has been lifted because the electrical issue has been addressed and the level in the water tower has returned to normal,” said the Health Department in a statement on Monday.
In its original June 1 order, the Department called the situation “critical” and advised residents to conserve water immediately. By Friday, June 3, NYSEG had located the source of the issue and the tower’s water level was restored to its regular level.
Mayor Rich Richardson said the conservation order would be kept in place through the weekend as a precaution.
Residents are advised to contact the Village of Interlaken Water Department at (607) 532-8882 or the Seneca County Health Department at (315) 539-1945 for more information.
