Due to a malfunction in our chlorination equipment, the Kingston Water Department has issued a Boil Water Advisory. Our personnel are working to correct the problem and we are conducting tests to let everyone know when they no longer need to boil their water. We expect the advisory to last 24 to 48 hours. This advisory affects the entire City of Kingston. It does not impact the Golden Hill Water System, the Hillside Acres Water System, or the Town of Ulster Water Systems.
To boil your water, bring tap water to a rolling boil for one minute, and cool before using or use bottled water certified for sale by the New York State Department of Health. Boiled of bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and preparing food.
A copy of the Boil Water Notice and FAQ’s are attached for your use. Please contact Superintendent Judith Hansen at 331-0175 or The Ulster County Health Department at 340-3010 for additional information.
