As of Wednesday, the Waterford Water & Sewer Association says all customers in Waterford are still under a Boil Water Advisory, following a water treatment plant malfunction.

The Association says on Tuesday, a valve at its water treatment plant malfunctioned during a routine fire hydrant flush, causing drinking water tanks to empty, depleting the town's water supply.

The tanks were re-filled, but a Boil Water Advisory will continue until the Association gets results from safety and quality tests being performed on the town's drinking water supply.

According to the Waterford Water & Sewer association, the treatment plant that supplies water to the town has been depleted after a valve malfunctioned during a routine fire hydrant flush.

The Association tells us the tanks are in a "recovery state" and are being re-filled. Once water service is restored, residents are being told to boil their water until further notice.

There is no timetable for when water service will be restored or when the Boil Water Advisory will be lifted.
