UPDATE on Bradford water situation
Information courtesy of the Bradford Era:
A boil water advisory continues for some customers of the Bradford City Water Authority. The advisory was put in place on Nov. 22 for some customers after a water main line break on South Center Street. Authority Executive Director Kim Benjamin said on Monday they are just waiting to receive laboratory test results showing the water is safe before the advisory can be lifted. He said Wednesday will be the earliest that he may receive the results, but added it will probably be Thursday before they have all the test samples back. The advisory was amended on Nov. 23 to exclude many of the outlying areas of the authority’s customer base. The advisory has been lifted for the following customers: those south of Owens Way and U.S. Route 219 to Route 59 including those in Custer City, Minard Run Road, Lewis Run Borough, the Federal Correctional Institution-McKean and 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. All other customers remain under the boil water advisory.
