Town of Owego Boil Water Advisory Lifted
A boil water advisory for hundreds of homes in the town of Owego was discontinued November 3 as officials try to determine what caused a water line to rupture.
Town supervisor Donald Castellucci said the directive was lifted when test results confirmed there was no contamination of the water supply.
The advisory was issued November 1 after a water reservoir on Glann Road wound up empty because of a pipe split along Route 434.
Castellucci estimated up to 400 homes were affected by the problem. Some town residents were without water until the reservoir was refilled.
The supervisor said the town has been in contact with the manufacturer of the pipe in an effort to find out what may have caused two unusual incidents involving the line over the last several months.
