UPATE: 04/10/2022  1402   The Boil Water Advisory in effect for West Utica, including Schuyler Street and Oriskany Street West, has been lifted.

Officials with the Mohawk Valley Water Authority say that laboratory tests results now confirm that the water is safe for consumption.


Original Story:

• Schuyler St from Oriskany Blvd northerly to the dead end

• Oriskany Street West from 924 to 1018 Oriskany St West

The Boil Water Advisory will be in effect for about 48 hours, or until lab tests confirm it can be lifted.

Until  then, customers are being advised to boil their water for at least two minutes before using it for drinking or cooking.

Customers are also advised against using any water that appears cloudy or discolored -- especially hot water, since such usage will draw the water into the hot water tank, which may require customers to flush their tank once clear water becomes available.

Customers should also avoid washing their clothes in discolored water, since it may contain sediments that could permanently stain their laundry.
