The cloudiness in Fredonia’s water is clearing up, but not enough to lift the village’s boil water advisory, which has been in effect since Sept. 10.

Mayor Doug Essek announced Monday in Village Hall that turbidity levels are currently at 0.5 units and that the village is working with the Chautauqua County Health Department to reduce them to less than 0.3.

The village issued the advisory about cloudiness in the water after turbidity levels reached 1.1. Water customers were urged to boil all water for a minute before drinking it or using it for cooking.

Officials said at the time that turbidity probably had several causes, including construction to upgrade the filtration plant.
