Thanksgiving Day water UPDATE for Bradford
By Ruth Bogdan, Bradford Era
While a boil-water advisory remains in place for many Bradford City Water Authority customers, the restriction has been lifted for other users, said authority Executive Director Kim Benjamin Wednesday. The advisory was put in place after a water main line broke on South Center Street in Bradford Tuesday morning. The authority lost about four million gallons of stored water after the break. The authority and the state Department of Environmental Protection have modified the boil advisory to exclude higher elevations served by unaffected pump stations and water storage tanks. No longer under the advisory are customers south of Owens Way and U.S. Route 219 to Route 59 including those in Custer City, Minard Run Road, Lewis Run Borough, Federal Correctional Institute-McKean and the Bradford Regional Airport. Also excluded are customers from Stephen Lane to Marilla Reservoir on West Washington Street, those from Harrisburg Run to Olean Road in Derrick City, and those from the intersection of Interstate Parkway and Stone Avenue northwest to Sullivan Road in Bradford Township, according to Benjamin. “All other customers remain under a Boil Water Advisory as issued November 22nd until further notice,” he said.
