Loss of water and/or pressure in Village of South Blooming Grove

15-36 Hawthorne Drive

7-37 Pine Hill Road

Green Road



Bring tap water to a rolling boil, boil for one minute, and 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, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and preparing food until further notice.

This Boil Water Notice applies to customers 15-36 Hawthorne Drive, 7-37 Pine Hill Road and all of Green Road

At about 9:00am this morning, Wednesday, 9/29/21, due to repairs to a broken water main valve, the water system lost water and/or pressure.  When a water mains lose water and/or pressure it increases the chance that untreated water and harmful microbes can enter your water.

Harmful microbes in drinking water can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms and may pose a special health risk for infants, some elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems.  But these symptoms are not just caused by microbes in drinking water.  If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you should seek medical advice.

Water service was restored on September 29, 2021. Samples to lift the boil water order are being taken today and tomorrow and results may be available Saturday at the earliest.

It is likely that you will need to boil water for the next few days until we receive the results of samples.  You will be informed when tests show that you no longer need to boil your water. Updates and future notices will be posted on the Village’s website

Village Water Department at (845) 783-4622, Village Hall at (845) 782-2600 or the Orange County Health Department at (845) 291-2331.


Please share this information with other people who drink this water, especially anyone who may not get 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.
