"We are in the process of water testing, back filling the site, and flushing of the water lines," Village Manager Philip Zegarelli said in an update. "You may see that several nearby fire hydrants have been 'cracked open' and a 'whiff' of chlorine: this is to enable a more extensive flushing procedure. This is normal. Please be advised that you may have slightly discolored water (it’s the color of ginger ale right now). Check your own homes but the water is safe to drink. Avoid clothes washing."
Despite this morning's school closure, "...be assured that actions were initiated to meet all Health Department regulations, as abundance of caution…and well…common sense," Zegarelli added. "We expect all repairs and all additional VBM action to cease within hours."
