Numerous water line breaks keeping ECWA busy

Jul 25, 2016

Crews from the Erie County Water Authority have had their hands full since last week's break along a major line that affected up to a quarter million customers. Since then, they've addressed a half-dozen other breaks, including the latest early Monday afternoon in Amherst, not far from last week's bigger burst.

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

A "boil water" notice continues for communities in the northtowns affected by Wednesday night's water main break, though there was positive news from the Erie County Health Department Friday.
