DUNKIRK – A water emergency has been declared in the City of Dunkirk following a major water main break overnight.
Dunkirk Police say the water main break happened in the area of Lake Shore Drive East and Deer Street.
The city’s water department is currently working to make repairs. As a result, water customers may have low pressure or, at times, no water.
Industrial users are asked to temporarily shut down operations. When water is restored, customers will need to boil water before drinking or use bottled water.
Customers served by the North County Water District, west of Lake Erie State Park including the Village of Brocton must also conserve water, officials said.
These emergency actions will continue until further notice.
Police are asking residents to not call 911 because you do not have water.
