WATER ALERT FOR MILL STREET RESIDENTS
The Village has replaced a section of water line at the end of Mill Street.
For residents on Mill Street in addition to 91, 97 and 119 East Main Street., all water for consumption will need to be brought to a rolling boil for 5 minutes and then allowed to cool. The water will be okay for everything other than consumption, washing clothes, showers anything but consuming is okay. We must allow 48 hours for testing.
Reminder, anytime we disturb any of the water system, there is a chance of everyone seeing rusty or discolored water, The water is safe to drink (if you are not under a Boil Alert) but not very appealing.
