Thousands of western Broome County residents no longer are being advised to boil their water before drinking it.

The Endicott Water Department Wednesday afternoon announced the “boil water order” that had been issued three days earlier had been lifted.

According to the department, the problem “was corrected as of 2 p.m.” In a statement, the department apologized for any inconvenience.

Mayor John Bertoni had said the village did everything it could to respond to a water main break that occurred early Sunday morning.

Bertoni praised village employees who worked for about 19 hours to repair a 24-inch main line that ruptured near the South Street entrance to the water department’s headquarters.

Although many people served by the water system in Endicott, Endwell, West Endicott and West Corners received an automated telephone notification of the boil water order on Sunday, some complained that they had not been informed of the problem.

One woman who had been out of town said she learned of the order only after she noticed large pallets of bottled water prominently displayed at the Johnson City Wegmans store.
