The Seneca County Health Department has issued a boil water notice for the Village of Interlaken's Public Water System due to a water main break. Residents in the Village of Interlaken are advised to boil their water. Residents should bring their tap water to a rolling boil, boil for one minute and 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, washing hands, dishes, brushing teeth, and preparing food until further notice.
For more information, please contact the Village of Interlaken at (607) 532-8882 or the Seneca County Health Department at (315) 539-1945.
It's not a good way to start the day. The Village of Interlaken is dealing with a major water main break near the water tower. Water Commissioner Barbara Stewart tells us water was spotted running down the street early this morning . They want people to conserve water and watch for a boil water advisory.
Repairs might take a while.
We asked Stewart if the break is weather related since many places hovered near zero last night.
Because of the break the South Seneca Elementary School closed at 10:30 . If residents have concerns they should call the Village Office at 607-532-9200. In case of emergency - dial 911.
