The Village of Ardsley sent out a message to residents notifying them of hydrant flushing. Here’s what Donald Ali, planning supervisor of United Water New Rochelle, had to say:
“United Water New Rochelle crews will be flushing fire hydrants and blow offs in the Village of Ardsley at locations as shown on the attached sheet between the hours of 7:30am and 4pm on Friday, Monday, and Tuesday A temporary slight discoloration of the water and a decrease in water pressure may be noted as a result of opening the hydrants.
“If you experience this discoloration of water, please run your cold water in a basement sink for 15-20 minutes. This should clear your problem. Please make sure during this flushing period that you check your cold water for discoloration. If the water is discolored, please flush your line as mentioned above before attempting to do any laundry. Our workers will carry out this task between 7:30am and 4:00pm. Our workers have company identification cards for your security. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.”
