The Town of Jamesville has rescinded its boil water advisory from earlier in the week.

The Town of Jamesville Water Department has issued a boil water advisory after the town experienced low pressure and outages in the distribution system due to a damaged fire hydrant.

Authorities said that the hydrant has been isolated off from the system.

Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and the introduction of bacteria into the water system, authorities said.

The town advised boiling all water for human consumption or use bottled water. 

“Vigorous boiling for one minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water,” a release said.

Authorities recommend water customers to conserve water whenever possible.  

The advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued.
