The City of Dunkirk and The Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services announced today that the boil water and water conservation advisories in effect since Thursday March 29, 2018 for customers served by the City of Dunkirk water supply is now lifted. The affected area included the City of Dunkirk and water districts in the towns of Dunkirk and Sheridan. Water samples collected on March 29 and 30 from the affected area show that the water is safe to drink and can now be used for all purposes.
