Boil water advisory issued for Lakeland Sanitary District

Posted:

ONEIDA COUNTY (WAOW) -- The Lakeland Sanitary District in Oneida County is under a boil water advisory after total coliform bacteria found in routine testing.

According to the Oneida County Health Department, coliform bacteria lives naturally in soil and in the waste of warm-blooded animals, and they can also grow in water pipes. Officials say the presence of coliform is not harmful, but that it can mean viruses or other harmful bacteria may be present in the water.
