Village of Dryden Residents Under Boil Water Order


The Village of Dryden says the village is currently under a boil water order after a water main break occurred yesterday at the intersection of Mill Street and West Main Street within the village.

The break ended up causing a loss of water service for a number of residents and a significant drop in the water pressure throughout the village. The Village of Dryden said in a release that loss of pressure could allow contamination to enter the water system.

“The Village’s department of public works has been working diligently to restore service. However, New York State Department of Public Health regulations require that when there is a significant loss of water pressure over a period of hours, a boil water order shall be issued.”

The Village of Dryden said in a release.

The Tompkins County Health Department has additionally ordered a Boil Water Order for all customers within the Village of Dryden water system until further notice.

“The Department advices that you 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.”

The Village of Dryden will have updates posted to their Facebook page found HERE.
