FREDONIA – A nearly months long boil water order in the Village of Fredonia has ended.
Officials in a statement Wednesday afternoon said it is no longer necessary to boil water for drinking or food preparation, however, residents must continue to conserve water until further notice.
“Water samples have been collected throughout the distribution system and show that the water is safe to drink and use for all other purposes,” said Fredonia Mayor Doug Essek in a statement. “The Village of Fredonia is requesting that customers continue to conserve water until Monday, October 5, which will help from putting too much initial stress on the water treatment plant.”
The boil water order was first put in place on Thursday, September 10 after workers at the water treatment plant noticed increased turbidity levels due to a algae bloom.
Leaders there say since then several filter beds have been replaced and are in service.
