Village of Cambridge under boil-water advisory

Originally posted on August 3, 2016


CAMBRIDGE — The village of Cambridge is under a boil-water advisory, effective Monday afternoon.

The state Department of Health issued the advisory when a water sample showed a lack of chlorine, said Tracy Schneider, village deputy clerk.

As a result, the advisory will be effective for at least two days. Water samples must meet Health Department guidelines for two days in a row before the advisory is lifted.

As a safety precaution, people are advised to boil tap water or use bottled water for all culinary usage.

All tap water should be boiled at a rolling boil for at least one minute. The water should then be cooled before using.

The advisory is only for the village and not the town.
