(WIVB) — The boil water advisory in the towns of Boston and Concord has been lifted. However, residents on May Drive in the Town of Boston are still advised to boil their water.
News 4 will update this article when May Drive residents no longer need to boil their water.
The Erie County Water Authority issued a Boil Water Advisory for the Towns of Boston and Concord.
Officials say this advisory is due to a loss of pressure in the ECWA system in portions of those towns.
According to the ECWA, at 11 p.m. Wednesday, the system lost pressure due to a water main break supplying approximately 800 homes.
Impacted areas in the Town of Boston include:
- Boston State Road from Omphalius Road south to Trevett Road
- Back Creek Road, Boston Cross Road, Mill Street
And impacted areas in the Town of Concord include:
- Trevett Road south to Old Trevett Road
- Cul-De-Sacs and local subdivision roads within these boundaries that have experienced low or no pressure
The ECWA says people should bring tap water to a rolling boil, boil for one minute, and cool before using. People can also use bottled water. Officials also say boiled water is to be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and preparing food until further notice.
