IMPORTANT- Rt 89 Water District Boil Water Advisory- HAS BEEN LIFTED

Water Main Break

BOIL WATER NOTICE

BOIL YOUR WATER BEFORE USING

Bring tap water to a rolling boil, boil for 1 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 or preparing food until further notice.
This Boil Water notice applies to: The Residents of Seneca Falls, Fayette District #3 & District #7, Varick
Water District #4 and Romulus Route 89 Water District.

What happened?
At approximately 6pm on Tuesday August 31, 2021 there was a compromising water main break in the Town of
Seneca Falls. Due to this main break increases the chance that untreated water and harmful microbes can enter
the water line.

Harmful microbes in drinking water can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms and
may pose a special health risk for infants, some elderly, and people with severely compromised immune
systems. But these symptoms are NOT just caused by microbes in drinking water, and may have other causes. If
you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you should seek medical advice.

What is being done?
Once the water main is repaired and inspected, water service will be turned back on to the Route 89 water main
line. The Boil Water Advisory will be lifted after 2 consecutive days of sampling reveal negative bacteria
results.

It is likely that you will need to boil water for the next 3-4 days until the problem is fixed. You will be informed
when tests determine that you no longer need to boil your water.

Warning – COVID-19 Vaccine Scams

Excerpted from the United States Department of Health and Human Services

Though we’ve only seen one COVID-19 vaccine scam at this point, we know that this this type of fraud will move very quickly, very soon, and will take many forms. Scammers rapidly alter their tactics and adapt their schemes to the changing landscape, and we anticipate that they will leverage the pending COVID-19 vaccine to prey on unsuspecting beneficiaries. At this point, it is essential that we be aware of likely schemes:

  • You likely will not need to pay anything out of pocket to get the vaccine during this public health emergency.
  • You cannot pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine.
  • You cannot pay to get early access to the vaccine.
  • No one from Medicare or the Health Department with contact you.
  • No one from a vaccine distribution site or health care payer, like a private insurance company, will call you asking for your Social Security number or your credit card or bank account information to sign you up to get the vaccine.
  • Beware of providers offering other products, treatments, or medicines to prevent the virus. Check with your health care provider before paying for or receiving any COVID-19-related treatment.
  • If you get a call, text, email — or even someone knocking on your door — claiming they can get you early access to the vaccine, STOP. That’s a scam.
