WATER MAIN BREAK APRIL 7, 2020

Loss of pressure in Village of South Blooming Grove Water District 1, Worley Heights This Boil Water Notice applies to customers in Water District 1, Worley Heights pressure zone; namely the following streets: Austin Court, Dallas Drive, Fort Worth Place, Galveston Drive, Houston Avenue, Kingsville Drive, Midland Court, and San Marcos Drive.  If you lost pressure or did not have water, you are in the effected area

BOIL YOUR WATER BEFORE USING

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. At about 10:00 a.m. on Monday, April 6, 2020 and continuing into today Tuesday April 7, 2020, the water system lost pressure due to a water main break on Dallas Drive.  When water mains lose 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. The break was repaired on Tuesday afternoon and we are bringing in tankers to pressurize the system; water service has been restored. Samples to lift the boil water order are to be taken on Wednesday and Thursday. It is likely that you will need to boil water for the next few days until we receive the results of the 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 villageofsouthbloominggrove.com. For more information, please contact: 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 .
