Thousands of people in western Broome County are being told they now may use their water without boiling it first.

Endicott Mayor Linda Jackson on Sunday afternoon said a boil water advisory for customers of the village water system had been lifted.

The advisory had been issued early Friday morning after a water main break near Glendale Drive caused a loss of pressure in the system.

The directive applied to residential and business customers in Endicott, Endwell and West Corners in the town of Union.

Jackson said the "problem has been resolved."

A substantial amount of water was lost due to the main break late Thursday. Workers stopped the leak after a few hours and then spent much of Friday making repairs.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
