(Tuesday, Nov. 28)
NEW HARTFORD – A boil water advisory has been issued for a section of New Hartford following a water main break, according to the Mohawk Valley Water Authority.
MVWA maintenance crews are currently working to repair a water main break on Chapman Road in New Hartford. A boil water advisory is currently in effect for Chapman Road from Weston Road #9342 (downhill) to #9342 Chapman Road, along with Weston Road and Lindale Drive.
The boil water advisory will be in effect for those areas for approximately 48 hours, until laboratory testing confirms the advisory can be lifted.
Affected water customers are advised not to use any water that appears cloudy or discolored, especially hot water because it will draw the water into the hot water tank and could require customers to flush their tank once clear water becomes available. Customers should also avoid washing their clothes in discolored water because it may contain sediments that could permanently stain their laundry.
