Chautauqua County Health Officials Lift Boil Water Advisory

MAYVILLE – County health officials have lifted the boil water advisory that’s been in place for the last 48 hours.
The affected area included the City of Dunkirk and water districts in the towns of Dunkirk and Sheridan.
Water samples collected on March 29 and 30 from the affected area show that the water is safe to drink and can now be used for all purposes.
Officials said a large water leak caused by construction at the City of Dunkirk’s water plant prompted the advisory.
Workers feared the leak could’ve led to contaminants getting into the system.
The boil water advisory was put in place as a precaution.
