(WSYR-TV) — Residents that use the Village of Baldwinsville Water Department and live south of the Seneca River and on Paper Mill Island are being ordered by the Onondaga County Health Department to boil all water for drinking and culinary uses.
Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills most bacteria and organisms in the water.
Inadequate chlorine levels were found in drinking water on Wednesday as a result of the chlorination system not working properly.
It anticipated that the problem will be fixed within three days.
For more information, contact Stephen Darcangelo from the Village of Baldwinsville at 315.289.2273 or the Onondaga County Health Department at 315-435-6600.
