Below is a copy sent out from the County Department of Health

11/26/2013 at 16:00FROM: Public Health SanitarianSchoharie County Department of Public Health 

Please be advised that a Boil Water Order is in effect for the Colonial Village Route 7 Cobleskill.

There was a loss of pressure reported at this system on 11/22/2013 and this was not a planned interruption.  The system did not notify health department.

The chlorine feed pump was disabled when a well pump relay switch failed on 11/24/2013.

Accordingly a boil water order was issued to this system and will remain in effect until furthernotice.

Boil water notices have been distributed to residents as calls about it are being received.

Water leaks were reported by residents of the the mobile home park and water service was interrupted with no notifications.

The park has 80 services and service about 200 people.    Service has been restored according to a resident that reported the incident.  This is the only area affected.  It appears that only the distribution system has been affected as the resident reported pressure is restored.  Relay switch was ordered.  It appears that emergency stockpile equipment will not be required.

However, until samples have been collected and results received, water system flushed and cleared the notice shall remain in effect.

Samples are planned for today and 11/27.

The order may remain until 11/29.

Contact information has been left for the laboratory to contact DOH with sample results.
Water leaks in systems do occur as fittings break sometimes.  The system needs to notify DOH.  A boil water order may be issued anyway but the system must notify residents as well.
