Residents are ordered to boil all water for drinking and culinary purposes. This order is being issed pursuant to section 1107 of the Public Health Law. This order is being issued to water customers of the Ticonderoga water district in the following locations only: Street Road area, Race Track Rd. (entire length), Rt. 9N/22 (Between Rt. 74 to Street Rd.), Wicker St. (Between Rt. 74 to Race Track Rd.), Old Chilson Rd. (Between Chilson Reservoir to Race Track Rd.), and Burgoyne Rd. (Between Rt. 74 to Middle Rd.)
Do not drink the water without boiling it first. Bring all water to a boil in a clean container. Let it boil for one minute. Let it cool before using. Use bottle water certified by NYSDOH. Or use water from a public water system approved by NYSDOH. Boiled or bottled water certified by NYSDOH should be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and food preparation until further notice.
The Boil Water Order is being issued as a precaution. A water line break below the Chilson Reservoir has nearly emptied the reservoir. Water service in the locations noted above may be interrupted due to neglible water pressure. Dirt, debris and contaminated groundwater may enter the water main distribution system due to inadequate pressure. We are evaluating the situation and making necessary repairs. Consumers will be notified as soon as the Boil Water Order is rescinded.
The Boil Water Order shall only be lifted when repairs have been completed on the distribution system, water pressure has been restored to all customers, and two consecutive daily samples show no bacteriological contamination.
