Boil-water order in place in Black Brook


---- — BLACK BROOK — A broken water main in the Town of Black Brook's Water District 1 prompted a boil-water order on Thursday.

Users in the area that includes the corner of North Main Street and French Village Road (M&M Diner) to the district's end on French Village Road and including all residences on Smith Road and Black Brook Senior Housing must boil all water for drinking, washing dishes, brushing teeth and cooking .

According to the Clinton County Health Department, water must be boiled before ingesting. Bring all water to a rolling boil in a clean container, let it boil for one minute and let it cool before using. Those affected may use bottled water certified by the New York State Department of Health or water from a state-approved public water system for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and food preparation.
