In West Nyack the affected addresses were issued the boil water order on Monday, Oct. 29:
- All of Jeffrey Court

- All of Dara Court
- All of Snake Hill Road
- Old Mill Road from Strawtown Road to Branchville Road

Customers are advised to boil their water for one minute for the following uses: drinking, cooking, baking, washing dishes, making ice cubes, taking medication, brushing teeth, washing food, mixing baby formula, mixing juices or drinks, feeding pets or other consumption. Water does not have to be boiled for showering or washing clothes.
The Piermont and Grand View problems were caused by low pressure as a result of a temporary power outage at the Piermont booster station and reduced water levels in the Grand View tank. The West Nyack order resulted from damage to a water main in front of the treatment plant.
United Water emergency crews will collect water samples to monitor the safety of the drinking water. It typically takes 72 hours to administer tests to two sets of samples and receive results, so it is important for customers in the affected area to continue to boil water until further notice.
