BOIL WATER ADVISORY

VILLAGE OF NASSAU RESIDENTS

LOCATED ON CHURCH STREET #46 TO #72 ONLY

 DRINKING WATER WARNING

BOIL WATER ADVISORY

Loss of pressure in the Village of Nassau water

 BOIL YOUR WATER BEFORE USING

 What happened?

At about 9:30pm on Monday, August 26, 2019 our water system lost pressure due to a water main break on Church Street/Route 20.  When the distribution pipes and mains lose pressure it increases the chance that untreated water and harmful microbes could enter the system.

What should I do?

 DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it 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, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills most bacteria and other organisms in the water.

Harmful microbes in drinking water can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms. They may pose a special health risk for infants, some elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems.  The symptoms above are not just caused by organisms in drinking water. If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you may want to seek medical advice.

What is being done?

 Village of Nassau DPW is in the process of repairing the broken pipes. We will inform you when tests confirm that no harmful bacteria are in the system and you no longer need to boil your water. We anticipate resolving the problem within 48 hrs.

For more information, please contact Melissa Turner-Bulan of the Village of Nassau Clerks Office at 518-766-3044 ext 2 or Rich Elder at the Rensselear County Health Department 518-270-2632.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
