COOPERSTOWN, N.Y.- The Otsego County Jail's inmate housing units have been temporarily closed.
All of the jail's inmates have been transferred to facilities in nearby counties.

The cause of the leaks has been identified and are in the process of being repaired.
The Sheriff's Office is working with the New York State Commission of Corrections, the Otsego County Chairman of the Board of Representatives, Engineers, and Health and Safety Officials to properly repair and correct the situation.
