Portions of Alfred under a boil order notice

Loss of pressure in      VILLAGE OF ALFRED                       .

Bring tap water to a rolling boil, boil for one minute, and cool before using.  Or use bottled water certified for sale by the New York State Department of Health.  Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and preparing food until further notice.

This Boil Water Notice applies to Alfred University, Nevins St., Pine Hill Dr., Sayles St, Spruce St.

At about               6:00 PM       on   February 13, 2020                                      the water system lost pressure due to            Water Main Break .


When water mains lose pressure, it increases the chance that untreated water and harmful microbes can enter your water. 

Harmful microbes in drinking water can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms and may pose a special health risk for infants, some elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems.  But these symptoms are not just caused by microbes in drinking water.  If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you should seek medical advice.


         The Village of Alfred’s Department of Public Works is currently repairing the water main break.


It is likely that you will need to boil water for the next ___5____days until the problem is fixed.  You will be informed when tests show that you no longer need to boil your water.
