Boil water advisory lifted

BROCTON, N.Y. (WIVB) — A boil water advisory, issued for the Village of Brocton, has been lifted.

Water service was shut off to the Chautauqua County village and the Town of Portland, excluding Van Buren Point, so that crews could repair a major leak.

Those who get their water from the village were advised to bring their water to a rolling boil for one minute, and then let it cool, until further notice.

This was advised to prevent the possibility of sickness caused by untreated water and harmful microbes.
