Water Service Restored In New Milford; Boil Advisory Remains

June 28, 2019

NEW MILFORD — New Milford Municipal Authority water customers had their service restored Friday but remain under a mandatory boil advisory. The authority is still asking residents to conserve water as much as possible for the time being. “This means no unnecessary use of water like washing your car, watering your lawn or filling pools,” they said in a notice. With water restored, the American Red Cross shelter at the Blue Ridge High School has been removed. The water shortage stemmed from a seven-hour effort to extinguish a fire at the Summit on Route 11 on Tuesday night. The fire consumed the restaurant. Investigators could not determine what caused the fire because the damage was too extensive. — JOSEPH KOHUT
