Hamburg, Orcard Park, New York (VVB) – The County County Water Authority has issued a hot water notice to residents of Hamburg and the Orcard Park area.
Areas affected by the ad include the following
- To the north at Armor Rd
- South to Shamrock City / South Abbott R
- To the west by Okrij.
- Crossing between Armor Rd & Powers Rd to the east
These areas of the Eri County Water Authority were damaged at around 4:00 a.m. on January 23, due to a major water break between South Park Street and Clark Road south of Eri County Highway.
The rest in the pool was washed out. However, ECWA has not yet taken water samples to determine water quality.
The authorities say bring tap water to boiling water, boil it for a minute and let it cool before using it. They say that not doing so could endanger your health.
Harmful bacteria in drinking water can cause diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, headaches or other symptoms that can cause serious health problems for children, some elderly people and people with severe immunity. But these symptoms are not just caused by microbes in drinking water. If any of these symptoms persist, you should seek medical advice. ”
