GLENVILLE — The boil-water advisory on the south end of Glenville's Route 50 corridor will be in place into Friday, but barring any problems it will be lifted before the weekend.

The town Water Department needed to replace a pressure-reducing valve under Route 50 between Ellsworth Avenue and Spearhead Drive. It had enough time that it was able to schedule the work around the needs of a major water user in the area, the Baptist Health Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

The center's staff posted notices about the water outage and made preparations for residents and staff. A staffer said Wednesday it has been an inconvenience but not a problem, because of the advance notice.

With the valve replacement complete, workers on Wednesday took a water sample to check for contamination. That will take 24 hours to produce results. On Thursday, a second sample will be taken. If 24 hours later there is no contamination found in the test of the second sample, the county's boil-water advisory will be lifted.

Affected streets are:

  • All of Spearhead Drive
  • All of Regal Court
  • All of Van Slycke Avenue
  • All of Uncas Drive
  • 316-372 Ballston Road (Even Side Only)
  • 297-383 Ballston Road (Odd Side Only)
  • 18-50 Banker Ave.
  • 197-215 Parkland Ave.
  • 10-23 Oakland Ave.
