The Boil Water and Water Conservation Advisories for the Town of Hector and Village of Burdett system have been lifted/canceled as of 4pm August 17, 2018.  The water is now deemed safe to drink.
However, please be advised, the boil water advisory for the Village of Watkins Glen, Dix & Reading Water Districts remains in effect.
 Bring tap water to a rolling boil, boil for one minute, and cool before using. Or use bottled water certified for sale by the New York State Department of Health. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and preparing food until further notice.

It is likely that you will need to boil water for the next 5 days.
