Update: Rotterdam boil-water advisory lifted
(Originally posted 4/28/17)
If you plan on eating or drinking at any commercial spots in Rotterdam, you'd be advised to ask them if they have boiled their water.
The Schenectady County Department of Environmental Health on Thursday issued a boil-water order Thursday after an equipment problem was reported at the town water plant. The order, covering drinking or cooking water, will remain in effect for a day or more until testing confirms there is no bacteria in the water.
It is a result of the failure of a chlorine gas injection system at the Rice Road water treatment plant which draws water from wells in the Great Flats aquifer.
Water should be boiled for at least one minute. The Health Department said boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and all food preparation.
