Boil water advisory in Ilion caused by power outage

UPDATE: The boil water advisory in the village of Ilion is likely to be lifted by Thursday, according to Ilion Mayor Terry Leonard.
Leonard said a fallen tree cut power to the water treatment plant on Elizabethtown Road. He says the issue has nothing to do with any previous water main breaks, and it is solely due to the power cutoff at the facility.
“Whenever we have trouble with water, water issues, we have to notify the Department of Health,” Leonard said. “We told them it was going to be a time before they could restore the electricity and the Department of Health advised us that we should go on the village-wide boil water advisory.”
The advisory will be lifted once test results indicate the water is safe.
