Boil Water Order in Westfield lifted...

The Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services has lifted the Boil Water Order for the village of Westfield.  Water Resource Specialist Bill Boria says they notified all Westfield residents that they can now use tap water for drinking, cooking, and all other normal uses.  Boria says the village's Water Treatment Plant is back in normal operation... and, producing water that meets state and federal turbidity standards.  Last week's heavy rain storms caused highly turbid conditions in the reservoir that created treatment problems at the water plant.  Village water staff have flushed the distribution system and collected two consecutive days of water samples that were tested for bacteria.  Boria says both rounds of samples were analyzed... and, it was confirmed that no harmful bacteria were present.  However... Boria says water customers should flush their plumbing systems by running faucets, tubs, and other water fixtures to make ensure safe water.  He says if there is any cloudy or colored water... do not do laundry... nor drink the water until it has cleared.
