Hospital back to full service after boil water advisory lifted


For medical facilities like the Sisters of Charity Hospital St. Joseph Campus in Cheektowaga, water safety protocol was necessary to continue servicing patients.

The Harlem Road facility took measures to stay clean and keep water at that location. Hospital President and CEO, Peter Bergmann says now that the boil water advisory has ended, the hospital plans to evaluate their response to the crisis.

The Erie County Water Authority tested several samples of water from the areas affected by Wednesday's water main break in Amherst. On Saturday they announced the final test for bacteria was negative and the boil water advisory was lifted.

Customers are advised to dispose of any ice made by automatic ice makers during the boil water notice.
