MAYVILLE, N.Y. – The Chautauqua County Health Department, in conjunction with the Village of Fredonia has lifted the boil water order for all Village of Fredonia water customers, including any customers outside the Village boundaries.
Water leaving the treatment plant has been adequately treated since late Thursday night, 2/8/2024 , and two consecutive days’ sample results indicate the water throughout the distribution system is safe for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, making coffee, etc.
