NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. – The Mohawk Valley Water Authority are working to repair a water main break on Oxford Road in New Hartford.

Residents on the following roads are under a boil water advisory, and should boil water for at least two minutes before using it for drinking or cooking.

Oxford Road from Hoffman Road southerly to 3800 Oxford Road, including:

  • Mallard Brook Lane
  • Woodberry Road from Oxford Road to 12 Woodberry Road
  • Library Lane
  • Beechwood Road
  • Wills Drive
  • Center Terrace
  • Janet Terrace
  • Humphry Terrace
  • Kellogg Road between Oxford Road and Tibbitts Road
  • Tibbitts Road from Kellogg Road to westerly end of Jubilee Lane
  • Jubilee Lane
  • Imperial Drive
  • Regency Road
  • Court Knoll
  • Regal Court
  • Snowden Hill Road from Oxford Road westerly to 3884 Snowden Hill
  • Twyndom Terrace
  • Hughes Lane houses 9 and 11

Even after service is restored, a boil water advisory will be in effect in the area for 48 hours, or until tests show the water is not contaminated.

The MVWA also advises against using water that appears cloudy or discolored, especially hot water, since it will draw the water into the hot water tank, and customers will have to flush the tank once clear water becomes available.

Residents should also avoid washing clothes in discolored water, as it may contain sediments that could permanently stain laundry.

The New Hartford Public Library at 2 Library Lane will not open until 1 p.m. Thursday while crews working on repairing the water issue.

For updates on the advisory, call the Boil Water Advisory Hotline at 315-792-0309.
