WESTFIELD, N.Y. (WIVB) — Village of Westfield water customers have been put on strict water conservation alert.
The village was forced to shut down their water filtration plant after yesterday’s flooding. They could not produce water that met Health Department standards.
All residents and businesses served by the Village of Westfield are asked to conserve water where ever possible until further notice. However they say the plant was immediately shut down when the heavy rains caused mud and other substances to flow into the reservoir. They feel confident that no untreated water entered the system.
The village has enough water in storage to last two days.
A boil water order is in effect until further notice for customers along Route 5 west of Walker Road.
