Boil Water Notice canceled for users of Village of Akron Public Water System

Residents who use the water system no longer have to boil their water, according to the Erie County Department of Health.

AKRON, N.Y. — A Boil Water Notice that was issued on Monday for water customers using the Village of Akron Public Water System has been canceled.

Officials on Thursday said they found the leak and fixed it.

According to the Erie County Department of Health, a water main leak on Sunday around 2 a.m. caused the water system to lose pressure. When a water main loses pressure, it increases the chance that untreated water and harmful microbes can enter the water. 

The water department had been searching for the leak and called the New York Rural Water for assistance. Once the leak was found, it was isolated and fixed.

More information can received from John Asmus of the Village of Akron Public Water System at 716-481-9847 or the ECDOH at 716-961-6800.
