United Water received notification from the Rockland County Health Department on Tuesday afternoon that the boil water order can lifted for Piermont and Upper Grandview customers. Customers were ordered to boil water as a precautionary measure due to a loss of pressure which occurred following Hurricane Sandy.
Lab results indicate that the water meets all safe drinking water standards. It is no longer necessary for customers to boil their water for drinking or cooking purposes.
“In the aftermath of the storm, we had difficulty accessing some of our equipment which serves customers in this neighborhood," said Michael Pointing, vice president and general manager of United Water New York. "Power has been restored and our crews flushed water mains in the area to help ensure water quality. We appreciate our customers’ patience during this time.”
