A contractor working on a county sewer project broke a six-inch water main on Union Road and Jasinski Road in Spring Valley. Residents in the area are under a boil water order as noted below.
The Rockland County Health Department has issued a boil water order for certain addresses on Union Road and Jasinski Road in Spring Valley. Customers are ordered to boil their water before using it for drinking or cooking purposes. The boil water order is a precautionary measure following a main break in the area. Loss of pressure in a water main increases the chance that untreated water and harmful microbes could enter the system. Therefore customers must boil their water until further notice.
The boil water order is in effect for the following addresses ONLY:
- Union Road # 23, 27, 28, 30, 32, 33, 34, 36, 38, 40, 45, 53, 55, 68, 70
- Jasinski Road # 1, 2, 4
Customers are ordered to boil their water for one minute for the following uses: drinking, cooking, baking, washing dishes, making ice cubes, taking medication, brushing teeth, washing food, mixing baby formula, mixing juices or drinks, feeding pets or other consumption. Water does not have to be boiled for showering or washing clothes.
