New York State Department of Health Recommends Do Not Drink: Blue-green Algae Toxin Detected in Village of Rushville Water Above Health Advisory Level


The New York State Department of Health recommends that all consumers served by the Village of Rushville's Public Water Supply, including customers in the Middlesex Water District, use an alternate source of water for drinking, cooking, making infant formula, making ice, and preparing food and beverages until further notice. The water is acceptable for other household uses, such as bathing, washing hands, washing dishes, flushing toilets, and cleaning. Boiling water and in-home treatment will not remove the blue-green algae or their toxins.
