January 19, 2022


Loss of pressure in the Village of Cornwall on Hudson Public Water System


Bring tap water to a rolling boil, boil for one minute, and cool before using.  Or use bottled water certified for sale by the New York State Department of Health.  Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and preparing food until further notice.

This Boil Water Notice applies to Tamara Lane, # 205 Main Street, #8 & #10 McCanns Lane.                                                                                                                                                  

What Happened?

At about 12:30pm am on Wednesday January 19, 2022 the water system lost pressure due to a water leak on Tamara Lane. When water mains lose pressure, it increases the chance that untreated water and harmful microbes can enter your water.

Harmful microbes in drinking water can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms and may pose a special health risk for infants, some elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems.  But these symptoms are not just caused by microbes in drinking water.  If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you should seek medical advice.

What is being done?

Water Department personnel have made temporary repairs to the water main and water service was restored this evening. A permanent repair will be made on Thursday January 20, 2022 which will necessitate another water shut down.   A precautionary boil water advisory will remain in effect until water sampling is completed and it is determined that a boil water advisory is no longer needed.

It is likely that you will need to boil water for at least the next 3-4 days until the problem is fixed.  You will be informed when tests show that you no longer need to boil your water.
