The Erie County Water Authority issued a boiling water advice to the cities of Boston and Concord.
Officials say this advice is due to a loss of pressure on the ECWA system in parts of these cities.
According to ECWA, the system lost at. 23 Wednesday at 23:00 pressure due to a major outage in water that supplied about 800 homes.
Affected areas of the city of Boston include:
- Boston State Road from Omphalius Road south to Trevett Road
- Back Creek Road, Boston Cross Road, Mill Street
And affected areas in the city of Concord include:
- Trevett Road south to Old Trevett Road
- Cul-De-Sacs and local subdivisions within these boundaries that have experienced little or no pressure
ECWA says people should bring tap water to a boil, boil for a minute and cool before use. People can also use bottled water. Officials also say that boiled water should be used for drinking, making ice cream, washing up, brushing teeth and preparing food until further notice.
