Baldwinsville, N.Y. - There is boil water order in place now for the Village of Baldwinsville:
It's impacting everyone in the village south of Paper Mill Island. Officials say they found an inadequate level of chlorine in the water system. Chlorine is used to destroy harmful bacteria that could be in the drinking water. The bacteria could cause diarrhea, cramps, and nausea, and could pose a special risk to the children and elderly.
The problem with the chlorination system has already been fixed but it may be a few days before the contaminated water is worked through the system.
