– NOTICE #5 –


Item: Tarrytown DPW Continues Fire Hydrant Flushing Operations.

Dates: Tuesday October 18, 2022 - Wednesday October 20, 2022.

Times: 6:00 p.m. to midnight.

Location: WILSON PARK including Cobb Lane

DPW crews will be flushing all fire hydrants between the above streets. The area of flushing will be on street in the Wilson Park Drive section including Cobb Lane. Signs will be posted in the area of the affected Fire Hydrants.

The purpose of the hydrant flushing program is to perform normal maintenance – check water pressure, clear any buildup and assure the hydrant is properly functioning.

Slight discoloration in your water service may occur during the flushing period, but will quickly dissipate. The discolored water is safe for consumption but may stain clothing. Clothes washing should be delayed until the water is clear. If you experience brown water, please flush your plumbing fixtures until the water is clear (usually 10 -15 minutes).

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation. Any questions regarding this program can be directed to dpw@tarrytowngov.com or call 914-631-0356.
