Boil water order lifted for Fayette, Varick in Seneca County

The boil water order issued Friday for customers of Fayette Water District No. 5 and Varick Water District No. 3 was lifted on Wednesday.

The order was issued by the Seneca County Health Department after a water main broke that fed water to the storage tank at Hillside Children’s Center in Varick. That jeopardized the safety of the water.

The Health Department said at least two consecutive days of positive water sample tests were required before the boil water order could be lifted.
