GREENBURGH, N.Y. Certain areas in Greenburgh can expect water discoloration and low pressure in their sinks and toilets during a period of maintenance this week.
Greenburgh's Consolidated Water and Sewer Districts will be performing a hydrant flushing program this week to ensure clean water and no problems in times of emergency. The program will operate from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. every day until Friday.
"This discoloration consists primarily of harmless silt and air, and does not affect the safety of the water," stated the Greenburgh Water Department. "This does not represent a health hazard. However, customers are cautioned to determine if the water is clear before washing clothes as staining may occur."
After the hydrant flushing takes place both, each afternoon and when the program is finished it is recommended that residents run cold water through their faucets for several minutes to guarantee that the discoloration is gone.
Below is a list of neighborhoods that will be affected by the hydrant flushing:
Mayfair Acres Roads near Knollwood Road, Manor Drive, Buena Vista Drive, Chelsea Road.
Parkway Homes Roads near Hillside Avenue, Old Tarrytown Road, North Road, South Road, Maryton Road, Lawrence Drive, Virginia Road.
