[ARCHIVED] Boil Water Advisory for Clark Street, East David Street and Jersey Avenue


City of Ogdensburg – Boil Water Notice

Location:  900-1000 Blocks of Clark Street,  1000-1100 Blocks of East David Street and 1000-1100 Blocks of Jersey Avenue 

Date:          Wednesday August 4, 2021 


Bring tap water to a rolling boil, boil for one minute, and cool before using. Or use bottled water certified for sale by the New York State Department of Health.   Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and preparing food until further notice.

What Happened?         

Installing a new fire hydrant on the Southeast corner of East David & Clark St. Where there is little or no water pressure.   When water mains lose pressure, it increases the chance that untreated water and harmful microbes can enter your water.

Harmful microbes in drinking water can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms and may pose a special health risk for infants, some elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems.  But these symptoms are not just caused by microbes in drinking water.  If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you should seek medical advice. 

What is being done?

Once operation is complete, and water service restored, bacteriological samples will be collected to confirm the water is safe to drink, which will take a few days.

You will be informed when tests show that you no longer need to boil your water, in about 2-3 days.

For more information, please contact:

City of Ogdensburg Filtration at (315) 393-0490
