Fulton Boil Water Order is Lifted; Tap Water is Safe to Use

JUST IN: Fulton officials have lifted the boil water order in place since Saturday.

City water has passed two days of water quality tests and is now safe to use for cooking, washing and drinking.

The boil water order was imposed after a cave-in on a major city well was discovered Saturday.  The well has since been removed from the city water supply while officials look for a way to fix it.

Here’s the city’s press release, below:

City of Fulton water customers were notified on Saturday, May 19, 2012 of a problem with one of the City wells and were advised to first boil their water before using it. We are pleased to report it is no longer necessary to boil the water before using it. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.

As always, you may contact Chief Operator John Florek at the Fulton Water Works, 592-7152 or 402-6074, DPW Commissioner Dan O’Brien at 402-6125, or the Oswego County Health Department at 341-0086 with any comments or questions.
