BOIL WATER NOTICE
 

11/3/2020

Dear Neighbors,

Loss of pressure in some areas in Tuxedo Park 

RESIDENTS LIVING ON TOWER HILL ROAD & CLUBHOUSE ROAD

BOIL YOUR WATER BEFORE USING

 
Bring tap water to a rolling boil, boil for one minute, and cool before using, or use bottled water. 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 Tower Hill Road & Clubhouse Road. If you do not live on these roads but believe you have had a drastic change in water pressure on Sunday evening please contact Denise Spalthoff at the Village Police Department 845-351-4741 or dspaltoff@tuxedopark-ny.gov and we will send a DPW employee to check your system or provide you with updated information.
 
What Happened?
 
At about 6:00 pm on Sunday, November 1st, the water system lost pressure due to a water main break at Tower Hill Road and Tuxedo Road. 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.  
 
What is being done?
 
The major repair work is complete. The OCDOH requires two consecutive days of positive water sample testing before we return to normal. Therefore, it is likely that you will need to boil water for the next 3-days until the OCDOH gives us the all-clear. You will be informed when tests show that you no longer need to boil your water.
 
For more information, please contact:
 
Denise Spalthoff at the Village Police Department 845 351 4741 or dspaltoff@tuxedopark-ny.gov, or the Orange County Department of Health at 845-291-2331.                                       
 

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


Stay safe.


Thank you,

Mayor Mac
