5/26/2015- NYC DEP MAINTENANCE TRIGGERS BOIL WATER ADVISORY
7 Sound Shore Communities Advised to Boil Water Wednesday 10 a.m. to Midnight
A boil water advisory has been issued by the Westchester County Department of Health for the following municipalities served by the United Water Rate District #1 and will remain in effect on Wednesday, May 27 from 10 a.m. through midnight. Approximately 150,000 people are in the affected areas as follows:
· City of New Rochelle
· Town of Eastchester
· Village of Bronxville
· Village of Tuckahoe
· Town of Pelham
· Village of Pelham
· Village of Pelham Manor
The boil water advisory is being issued as a precautionary measure while New York City Department of Environmental Protection performs scheduled maintenance of its chlorination system resulting in inadequate disinfection of water provided to United Water Rate District #1.
A boil water advisory means that residents in the affected area must boil all tap water at a rolling boil for a minimum of one minute prior to drinking it or using it to prepare food, wash dishes by hand or brush teeth. Restaurants, delis, bodegas and all food service establishments in the affected area also must boil water before serving it or using it to prepare food. Residents also can use bottled water as an alternative to boiling.
The advisory does not extend to bathing, clothes washing or the use of a dishwasher.
Updates to the boil water advisory will be provided by the Health Department as needed. For more information, residents should contact United Water Rate District #1 at 914-632-6900 or visit their website at www.unitedwater.com/newrochelle.
