BOIL WATER ADVISORY ISSUED
Portions of Court St and Lenox Ave, City of Utica
May 17, 2018, 3:00 PM - Mohawk Valley Water Authority maintenance crews are working to repair a water main break at the intersection of Court St and Lenox Ave in the City of Utica.
When service is restored, a Boil Water Advisory will be in effect for the following area:
· Court St - From Lenox Ave to Saratoga St
· Lenox Ave – Court St to Green St
The Boil Water Advisory will be in effect for the affected area for approximately 48 hours until laboratory testing confirms that the advisory can be lifted. During this time, customers are advised to boil their water for at least two minutes before using it for drinking or cooking.
Customers are also advised against using any water that appears cloudy or discolored -- especially hot water, since such usage will draw the water into the hot water tank, which may require customers to flush their tank once clear water becomes available. Customers should also avoid washing their clothes in discolored water, since it may contain sediments that could permanently stain their laundry.
