NEW YORK (CBS 2) — A boil water advisory is in effect for several suburban New York communities on both sides of the Hudson River.

The advisory is in effect for sections of Ramapo and New City in Rockland County until Monday night pending results of two tests. About 540 United Water customers are affected.

In Westchester County, residents in Sleepy Hollow, Tarrytown, Elmsford, Hawthorne, Valhalla and Thornwood are also advised to boil water before drinking or using it for food preparation.

The advisory was lifted Monday for residents of Briarcliff, Grasslands Reservation and Irvington.

Health officials say the recent snowstorms may have affected water quality there.

The advisory means water should be boiled at least one minute.

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
