Attention Village of Fredonia Water Customers
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
BOIL WATER ADVISORY ORDER LIFTED

As of 3:30 pm on September 30, 2020, the boil water advisory, which has been in effect since Thursday
September 10, 2020 for customers served by the Village of Fredonia water supply, is now lifted. This
includes customers in the Town of Pomfret who obtain their water from the Village.

Water quality from the reservoir has improved and following important upgrades at the water treatment
plant, the turbidity levels in the finished water are now in compliance with New York State Department
of Health standards. Water samples have been collected throughout the distribution system and show
that the water is safe to drink and use for all other purposes.

The Village of Fredonia is requesting that customers continue to conserve water until Monday, October
5, 2020, which will help from putting too much initial stress on the water treatment plant.

The Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services would like to thank all affected
water customers for their cooperation and patience while the boil water order was in effect, and
commend the Village of Fredonia and others involved during the water emergency for working
together to manage the crisis.

For more information, please contact Mayor Doug Essek of the Village of Fredonia at 716-679-2301 or
the Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services at 716-753-4481.

Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have
received 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.

State Water System ID#: NY0600364 Date distributed: 9/30/2020
