The Board of the Mount Vernon Industrial Development Agency will hold its next Regular Meeting on Wednesday, May 3, 2017, at 11:00am in the Mayor’s Conference Room – City Hall, Mount Vernon, NY 10550.
NOTE: The 5/3/17 meeting will convene in place of the previously scheduled 4/28/17 Regular Meeting.
Property owners should have received notice in their water bills that the Mount Vernon Board of Water Supply would begin its annual hydrant flushing and required hydrant flow tests throughout the city this month. Renters are reminded that it is the landlord’s responsibility to inform tenants of this annual procedure to improve the quality of water we deliver to customers.
The flushing involves some nighttime and some early morning flushing to minimize the impact in several critical areas. The balance and larger portion of this program will be from 9:00 A.M.to3:00 P.M.Monday through Friday.
The flushing of these hydrants may cause discolored water. This discoloration represents no health hazard. Nevertheless, it is recommended that you check the water before using it for things such as cooking, drinking, washing clothes, etc. Flushing is necessary to rid water mains of accumulated rust and sediment.
Please check our schedule to see when flushing will occur in your neighborhood. For answers to your questions or to know the approximate flushing time in your area, call the Board of Water Supply at (914) 668-7820. We will be happy to assist you.
Hydrant flushing is expected to be completed by May 10, 2017.
