Boil water advisory lifted in Murray
MURRAY – The Orleans County Health Department has lifted a boil water advisory for Murray residents on public water north of the canal.
About 500 residents were advised to boil tap water for a minute. That advisory was issued on Wednesday after water samples on Monday and Tuesday showed E. coli bacteria.
Two straight days with positive tests triggered the two-day advisory.
Town highway workers have flushed water hydrants to improve water flows in the water lines north of the canal. Tests since Tuesday have showed negative results for E coli.
“We want to thank everyone for their patience and concern,” Ed Morgan, the Murray highway superintendent, said this morning.
