(**Alert!)Boil Water Order issued for BPU customers south of Hunt Road, and Orchard Rd. in West Ellicott...

A water main break in the town of Busti has prompted the Chautauqua County Department of Health to issue a boil water order for a portion of Busti between Big Tree Road and Southwestern Drive.  Board of Public Utilities Spokeswoman Becky Robbins says the area is south of Hunt Road -- and for Orchard Road in the Town of Ellicott.  The health department says water customers in the affected area are ordered to boil all water for drinking and cooking until further notice.  A main break at the BPU Water Pump Station at the corner of Shadyside and Hunt Road about 1:30 p.m. today caused the water system in the area to lose pressure.  Customers reported low water pressure, and in some cases no water.  When pressure is lost... it increases the chance that untreated water and harmful microbes could enter the system.  Robbins says customers should bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one minute and let it cool before using or use bottled water certified for sale by the State Health Department.  Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation until further notice.
