A boil water advisory in effect in Brocton since a major water main break on Monday has been lifted, village officials and the Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services announced Thursday.
Officials said that samples collected Tuesday and Wednesday were found to be safe for drinking and other uses.
More than 2,000 customers were affected in the Village of Brocton, all Town of Portland water districts and the Van Buren Bay area in the Town of Pomfret.
The water main break at Central Avenue and Fifth Street was reported before dawn on Monday and was repaired by 2 p.m., but because of an overall loss of pressure the boil water advisory was issued as a precaution. Mayor Richard Frost noted that it was the second break on Central Avenue in six months. He said the cause will be investigated.
