OSSINING, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – A boil advisory for the Village of Ossining has been lifted, according to a news release from the Westchester County Department of Health.
About 5,000 people were affected by the break – extending to Route 9 on the west, Morningside Drive on the east, Hawkes Avenue at Bridle Path Road on the north, and Macy Road at Wolden Road on the south.
Restaurants, delis, bodegas, and all food service establishments were required to boil their water before serving it or using it to prepare food, the department said.
The advisory did not apply to bathing, washing clothes, or the use of dishwashers, the department said.
The order was prompted by a water main break Thursday night on Route 134 near Route 9A, according to the Ossining Water Department.
The village is repairing the water main break and testing the water, Westchester County Assistant Commissioner of Health Peter DeLucia said.
“The village is in the process of doing a repair, and in the process of testing a water, so we’re going to make sure that the water is negative for any kind of pathogens so that it is safe to drink,” DeLucia told 1010 WINS Saturday.
