OGDENSBURG, New York (WWNY) - More Ogdensburg neighborhoods are being advised to boil water.

The advisory is now in effect for:

  • Academy Place
  • 400 Block of Canton Street
  • 900 Block of Elizabeth Street
  • 500-600 Blocks of East South Street
  • 900 Block of Franklin Street
  • 500 Block of Jersey Avenue

City officials say people should avoid using tap water for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and preparing food. They should boil the water or use bottled instead.

Crews are replacing a water valve, so there’s little or no pressure. Low pressure increases the chance that untreated water and microbes can enter the system.

Officials say they expect it will be two or three days before it’s safe to use the water.
