Boil Water Notice Issued for Seneca Falls After Water Main Break

  • / Updated:
  • Staff Report 

A boil water notice was issued Friday for parts of Seneca Falls and is expected to last three to four days.

The affected area includes Fall Street north and west to Rumsey Street. Residents should boil water for one minute before using it for drinking, ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and preparing food, or use bottled water.

The Seneca County Health Department reported that a line break caused the water system to lose pressure around 2:30 p.m., increasing the risk of contamination. Residents experiencing diarrhea, cramps, nausea, or headaches should seek medical advice.

The boil water notice will be lifted after water samples test negative for harmful bacteria for two consecutive days. Residents will be notified when it is safe to use the water again.
