All homes and business in Hawthorne, Thornwood and Valhalla have been placed on a high water restriction, according to a notice on the town’s website.
“Conservation is very important to maintain our water supply,” the alert says.
It says the Commerce Street Pump station malfunctioned Monday evening. As a result, car washing and the use of lawn sprinklers are prohibited until further notice.
It’s unclear what caused the problem or when the water ban will be lifted.
