12:30 pm – There is a water line break under the water tower in a different location. Crews are currently working on fixing the issue. At this point I don’t know anything until they dig up the line. We will keep you updated as information comes in.
Wellsville City Residents: You will be experiencing low water pressure for approximately two more weeks while the water tower maintenance is happening. We are pulling pressure from Baldwin and have had to reduce some of that pressure so our older lines do not blow out. The new lid has been attached by crane and the old one removed. The inside is being sand blasted and painted. After that the tower will be filled and the water tested again by the State.
The Boil Water Advisory has been rescinded. Click on the link below for the official statement from the State.
