Arts on Third Newsletter

Arts on 3rd Newsletter

On September 22, 2013, Westchester’s premier and largest arts and entertainment festival will kick off its 12th year. The festival, which began with a humble attendance of approximately 3500 people, has grown to over 40,000 festival goers. The arts on third festival began in 1999 as a precursor to Mayor Ernest D. Davis vision to transform 3rd Street into an arts district. Mayor Davis then formed a task force to research the development of an arts district. This blue ribbon task force, called the Third Street Task Force was composed of each sector of the community and became the impetus behind the Arts On Third Festival. Art was the vehicle used to revitalized the area and as a catalyst to social change. The festival brings together hundreds of volunteers and is the largest, single community effort in Westchester, New York.

Hydrant Flushing Map

Click the Map to View Schedule

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.
