Hornell’s Mayor, John Buckley, alerted the community on the possibility of water discoloration for some residents on Thursday night.

This stems from a major business in Hornell planning to evaluate its fire suppression system during the late hours of Thursday, Aug. 24, potentially causing discoloration into the early morning of Friday.

Mayor Buckley advised citizens to inspect their water for any changes in color prior to using it, specifically recommending against laundry during the system’s testing phase. For those encountering discolored water, it’s suggested to let the cold tap run until it runs clear before use.
