ILION, N.Y. -- The State of Emergency and conserve water order for residents in the village of Ilion continues into another week.

The mayor Monday afternoon says the State of Emergency will continue until after the boil water advisory is lifted.

These advisories will remain in effect until the water system is stabilized.

A third water main break over the weekend added another obstacle for crews already working on the aftermath of the two previous breaks.

The mayor says residents have been understanding for the most part, and that the community has come out to support the crews working on the breaks.

He noted, people have brought donuts, riggies, coffee, and a little boy even brought over a box of donuts.

More water was delivered to the municipal building Sunday afternoon to be handed out to residents.

The mayor says since Friday, the village had gone through about 12 pallets of water through Saturday.

To reference that number, a pallet has more than 60 cases of water on it.

There will still be water handed out Monday at the municipal building in Ilion, and it is free to residents.
