A reliable water service is critical, especially during this health crisis. SUEZ continues to operate and maintain rigorous standards and conduct essential work to ensure that water is available at all times. As part of this effort, we will be making important water system improvements in the vicinity above. The work requires your water service to be shut off for about four hours as noted below.

We are taking extra precautions to help keep everyone safe, including rigorous social distancing guidelines and proper Personal Protective Equipment, when necessary. During this time, we ask that you maintain a distance of ten feet or more from our field crew. It is important that we all follow social distancing measures established by health officials to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you have questions, please do not approach our crew but call us at the number below.

Here are some important facts about this project:

• Description: Water main relocation / valve installation

• Location: Intersection of Clay Ave. and Hudson St.

• Impact: Water shut off for about four hours.

• Duration: July 22, 2020 (conditions permitting. If inclimate weather work will occur on 7/23/20)

• Shutoff Hours: 10:00 am to 2:00 pm (approximately)

• Contractor: J. Fletcher Creamer

• Contact Info: Dennis Daly, SUEZ Project Manager, 845-548-6421 (8am-5pm)

• Contact Info: SUEZ 877-266-9101 (SUEZ 24/7 Emergency line)

Listed below are a few things to expect:

• Your water will continue to meet all safe drinking water standards.

• SUEZ suggests that you fill containers with water that can be used for cooking and drinking during this time. You may also wish to fill the bathtub with water for flushing and cleaning.

• You may have discolored water when service is restored. This is the result of harmless sediment which is stirred up in the main. While the water is safe, customers may prefer to wait until the water runs clear before drinking or washing clothes or dishes.

• If you have discolored water run the water in the bath tub.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation while we work to improve our water system and water service.
