Boil Water Advisory
Update June 21st, 2014
Advisory HAS BEEN LIFTED
Boiling your water is no longer required.
A water main value break is being repaired or has been repaired near Mohawk Avenue(Rt 5) and Ballston Avenue(Rt 50). This has caused possible contamination of the local water supply. The Schenectady County Department of Environmental Services has issued directions to boil water for a full minute and allow to cool before drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and preparing food.
The properties directly affected are:
#1 – #101 Mohawk Avenue (NYS Route 5) excluding #32 and #40;
#104, 106 and 108 North Ballston Ave (NYS Route 50);
#102 Glen Ave.;
#2 – #22 Schonowee Ave.;
#3, #5 Livingston Ave.;
#7 – #73 Washington Ave.
Even after being repaired the contaminated water must be flushed through the system so continue boiling until notified it’s safe.
