The Village of Cobleskill spent the better part of Sunday evening without water after a main burst on Borst Noble Road, affecting the entire village and leaving thousands of residents without water.
Slowly village crews were able to bring residents back on line by supplying most of the village by means of the 1886 10" water main. Water pressure remains low and the municipality is advising households to conserve resources.
Issuing a boil water order as precaution for residents in the town and village of Cobleskill, as well as the adjoining Warnerville Water District, Cobleskill Mayor Linda Holmes stressed it was just to be "on the safe side."
Officials from the Schoharie County Department of Health will be on scene today to make sure water tests come back okay.
Presently only households on Borst Noble and Mineral Springs Roads are without water, but repairs have begun this morning and are expected to be completed by noontime.
If anyone in the village remains without water, officials are advising residents to call 518-231-7701 with information.
