Boil-water order lifted for Chatham water district

CHATHAM—The boil-water order for the village water district was canceled Thursday morning, September 12.

A release from Village Clerk Debra Meyers said that water samples had been “reviewed” by the county health department and the state Department of Health and that “all samples have been found to be in the safe limits.”

The release said Chatham Mayor John Howe thanked residents of the Village of Chatham and the Town of Ghent affected by the boil-water order for their “cooperation and patience.”

A state of emergency following a water main break Monday was previously ended following emergency repairs to the water system but the accompanying boil-water was left in place until water quality was confirmed. The Chatham water system extends beyond the Village of Chatham to serve parts to the Town of Ghent.
