Fredonia Delays Update On Water Until Monday

There’s no news regarding the boil-water order in the village of Fredonia.

Mayor Doug Essek this afternoon postponed the press conference, which was scheduled for 5 p.m. Sunday. It has been rescheduled to 3 p.m. Monday.

Since Sept. 10, the village has faced a boil-water emergency due to algal blooms in the reservoir and the need for replacement of filters at the water treatment plant.

During the process, it has created a hardship on some businesses — mainly restaurants — and the State University of New York at Fredonia campus. It also was a topic of debate at the last Village Board meeting on Monday.

This is the second time in three years the village has been in a boil-water state.
