  • The boil water advisory in the village of Mohawk has been lifted, according to Mike Shedd, of the Mohawk Municipal Commission.
    Shedd said he received a call from state Health Department officials shortly before 2:30 p.m. Friday that tests had been completed and the village water was once again deemed safe to drink.
    Residents here had been under a boil water advisory since the June 28 flood. The municipal commission had to order a new ultra-violet system for its water system from Atlantium Technologies, an Israeli-based company.
    Mayor James Baron posted a message on the village’s Facebook page on July 17, saying the new UV system had arrived in the United States, but was hung up at the customs office.
    Shedd had said earlier Friday the system had since arrived and been installed. Testing had been conducted and he was just waiting for the health department to give the OK so the boil water advisory could be lifted.
    Bottled water has been available for residents at the Mohawk Fire Station during the boil water advisory period.
    The municipal electric plant was also hit hard by the flooding and residents were asked to use electricity sparingly. Shedd said things are going well, but added, “If people would be a bit conservative, we’d appreciate it.”
    He expects to shut the plant down completely sometime in August and get some things back to normal.
