GREENBURGH, N.Y. The Catskill Aqueduct has been brought back online, which means residents of Greenburgh, Elmsford, Irvington and the Valhalla Grasslands campus can resume normal water use.
Sleepy Hollow and Tarrytown residents are still advised to limit their water consumption at this time.
The Westchester County Department of Health partially lifted its advisory on Wednesday afternoon. The county will be notifying residents by phone through the reverse-911 system.
The Catskill aqueduct had to be shut down because the impact of recent storms caused turbidity levels to rise. The New York City Department of Environment Protection shut down the aqueduct at 11 p.m. Monday night to fix the problem.
Tarrytown has notified residents that they should continue to conserve water after a pump station by the Tarrytown Lakes that sends water into the distribution system went out of operation.
Tarrytown residents should restrict uses of water for lawn watering, car washing and other non-essential actions until further notice.
