Oswego issues new boil water order for neighborhood south of downtown – Shaw Local

The Village of Oswego issued a new boil water order on Wednesday, June 22 for a residential section south of the village’s downtown.

This area is different from the area where a boil order was issued yesterday, Tuesday, June 21, according to the municipality.

In a press release, specifies the municipality, the following streets are impacted (pink area on the map):

Main St. from Judson Ave. at Fuller Ave.

Douglas St. from West End Court to Judson Ave.

Madison St. from Douglas St. to Judson Ave.

Monroe St. from Judson Ave. at Wilson Pl.

Forest Avenue, from Monroe Street to Route 71

Hickory St. from Monroe St. to Wilson Pl.

Fuller Avenue from Main St. to Madison St.

Judson Ave. from Madison St. to Forest Ave.

Locust St. de Forest Ave. at Hickory St.

All Liberty Court

North side of Route 71 from Douglas St./Main St. to Liberty Court

Water in the area fell below 20 pounds of pressure between 6 and 7 a.m. this morning due to a mechanical valve failure. The system was repaired and pressure restored. However, due to the loss of pressure, the village must issue a precautionary boil order.

The boil order is effective for at least 24 hours. Residents will be notified when it is lifted. Other areas of Oswego (except those subject to the June 21 boil-out order (yellow on the map) can continue to use tap water as usual.

Affected residents should use bottled or boiled water for drinking and cooking. Follow these guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): https://bit.ly/Boil_Order_CDC
