MAYVILLE, N.Y.:-- The Chautauqua County Health Department 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 Sunday 2/26/2023 and consecutive day sample results indicate the water throughout the distribution system is safe for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, making coffee, etc.


All plumbing lines that have not been used regularly since the boil water went into effect should be flushed before water from that line is consumed.  This includes ice makers and refrigerator water dispensers.


If you did not receive regular updates and alerts regarding the boil water order we encourage you to sign up for the NY Alert system at https://alert.ny.gov/sign-ny-alert-0.
