The Chautauqua County Health Department has collaborated with the Village of Fredonia to cancel the boil water order for all water customers in the Village, including those outside its boundaries. This decision was made after two consecutive days of sample results indicated that the water throughout the distribution system is safe for various purposes, including drinking, cooking, and making ice.
It is recommended that all plumbing lines that have not been regularly used since the boil water went into effect should be flushed before consuming water from that line, including ice makers and refrigerator water dispensers. If you have not been receiving regular updates and alerts regarding the boil water order, it is encouraged to sign up for the NY Alert system at alert.ny.gov/sign-ny-alert-0.
