[ARCHIVED] Boil Water Advisory for 200 Block Williams Street & 500-600 Blocks of Lisbon Street


Ogdensburg City – Boil Water Notice

Location 200 Block Williams Street and 500 and 600 Blocks of Lisbon Street

Date: 02/20/2022 Sunday


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 main break in the 200 block of Williams Street 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 repair is in the process of being fixed. After it is fixed, 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.
