[ARCHIVED] PRECAUTIONARY BOIL WATER NOTICE

Boil Water Notice

BOIL YOUR WATER BEFORE USING

This Boil Water Notice applies to customers on the Lake Drive Housing Complex

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.

What Happened?

On June 9, 2023 at 3:00 p.m., the City of Newburgh Water Department was dispatched to 212 Lake Drive for a Broken Water Main. 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?

The necessary repairs have been completed. You will need to boil water for the next few days as a precautionary measure. You will be informed when tests show that you no longer need to boil your water.  

For more information, please contact:

City of Newburgh Water Department at (845) 565-3356 
OR Orange County Health Department at (845) 291-2331

 Please share this information with other people who drink this water, especially anyone who may not get this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses).  You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
