Albion, N.Y. — Update: The boil water advisory for Albion has been lifted, Mayor Eileen Banker tells 13WHAM.
Roads were closed and a boil water advisory was put in effect in the Village of Albion after a water main break Tuesday.
The break happened around 12:30 a.m.
Village Mayor Eileen Banker said it was repaired around 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Banker said that the water level rose so much that it flooded a home on Main Street.
She said aging infrastructure could be to blame as the affected area is around 80-to-90-years-old.
Residents who live north of the Erie Canal and those who live in the business district - from Bank Street to the canal - should boil water for one minute before using or consuming it.
Those who experience low water pressure should also boil their water for one minute.
