BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Officials have issued boil water advisories for several Buffalo-area towns after restoring service that was caused by a water main break.

Erie County Water Authority officials say customers reported low water pressure or no water at all beginning just before 9 p.m. Wednesday. The source of the leak, a broken 36-inch pipe, was discovered just after 10:30 p.m. in the town of Amherst.

Water service was back to full capacity by Thursday morning.

County officials have issued boil water advisories for the towns of Amherst, Clarence, Lancaster, Newstead and villages of Williamsville, Lancaster and Depew.

Officials are asking residents to boil water for one minute for the next two to three days, until the safety of the water quality is confirmed.
