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?
Water Valve Installation at the intersection of Jersey Ave. & Franklin 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?

The installation and repair of two water main valves. After it is completed, and water service is restored, bacteriological samples will be collected to confirm the water is safe to drink, which usually takes a couple of business 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 DPW at (315) 393-2300 or the NYS DOH – Canton District Office at (315) 386-1040.
