Water leak prompts boil water notice in Whitehall

W hitehall Police announced that as of 10 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 9, village residents should boil their water.

Police received the notice from Public Works Superintendent Don Williams shortly before 10, informing them of the boil water notice.

Williams told police that public works crews would be working on a water leak on Elbo Street, necessitating the boil water notice.

Police said a reverse notification would be deployed, using the Washington County Department of Public Safety’s reverse notification system to residents and businesses.

At 6 p.m. on Monday night, residents and businesses with landline telephones were notified of the boil water notice.

The boil water notice remained in effect Tuesday, a fact confirmed by a call from the Whitehall Times to the Whitehall Department of Public Works.

Police advised that residents and business people could monitor the situation on the village police department’s “Nixie, Social Media Sites, website,” and the local media for updates.

Williams encouraged residents with questions or concerns regarding the boil water notice to contact him at 499-1575.
