Attention: BOIL WATER NOTICE Disinfection inadequate for the City of Norwich BOIL YOUR WATER BEFORE USING CUSTOMERS OF THE NORWICH CITY MUNICIPAL WATER SYSTEM ARE HEREBY ORDERED BY THE CHENANGO COUNTY HEALTH DEPARTMENT TO BOIL ALL WATER FOR DRINKING AND CULINARY PURPOSES. DIRECTOR OF ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH Routine monitoring on 6/19/2024 showed inadequate chlorine levels in the drinking water. The inadequate chlorine level is due to equipment failure. Chlorine is a disinfectant that is used to destroy harmful microbes that could be in the drinking water. DO NOT DRINK THE WATER WITHOUT BOILING IT FIRST. Bring all water to a boil, let it boil for one full minute, and let it cool before using, or use bottled water certified for sale by the New York State Department of Health. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes, and food preparation until further notice. Boiling kills most bacteria and other organisms in the water. Harmful microbes in drinking water can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms. Inadequate disinfection may pose a special health risk for infants, young children, some elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems. The symptoms above are not just caused by organisms in drinking water. If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you may want to seek medical advice. What is being done? Repairs to the malfunctioning equipment are underway. You will be informed when tests show that chlorine levels have returned to normal, no harmful bacteria are present, and you no longer need to boil your water. It is anticipated that the problem will be resolved within 2-3 days. For more information, please contact Edward Pepe at (607) 337-1250 or the Chenango County Health Department at (607) 337-1673. Please share [his information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may nol have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.

NOTICE TO TOWN OF NORWICH DOG OWNERS

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that New York State Law requires all dogs 4 months of age and older to be licensed? Licensing ensures that all dogs have been properly vaccinated against rabies for the protection of both you and your neighbors. The license also makes it easier to locate the owner of a lost dog when it is found. Any dog harbored at an address for more than 30 days must be licensed.

How do I license my dog?

Licensing your dog is easy!           

♦You can come to the Town Clerk’s Office with current rabies certificate and payment, or print out a Dog Licensing Form found on our website at https://townofnorwichny.gov. Simply follow the directions and return the completed form, required documentation, and payment by mail or in person to the Norwich Town Clerk’s Office located at 157 County Road 32A. 

♦ Fee: $7 Spayed/neutered, $14 not spayed/neutered

♦Every year we will mail you a renewal license for your convenience.

♦Any dog found to be unlicensed will be subject to an appearance ticket and a fine.

♦You may view the Town’s Local Dog Licensing Law on the website.

The Dog Control Officer (DCO) is appointed by the Town to assist in the enforcement of NYS Dept. of Ag & Markets Article 7: Licensing, Identification and Control of Dogs and local laws. The DCO is authorized to serve appearance tickets when violations of Article 7 or local laws have been committed. Any person who observes a dog in violation of these laws may file a complaint with the DCO. Any dog running loose may be picked up by the DCO and transported to the Chenango County SPCA, resulting in an additional fee charged to the owner by the SPCA prior to the dog’s release.
