Some Northern Westchester residents may soon experience discolored water as officials begin a semi-annual hydrant-flushing program.

The Village of Croton-on-Hudson Water Department announced that beginning on Monday, Sept. 16, crews will be flushing hydrants between 8 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. on weekdays.

The flushing program is expected to take approximately four weeks to complete. It is deemed “necessary to ensure the continued cleanliness of the water system and is mandated by the New York State Department of Health.

The Water Department will begin the program at the Village well field on Route 129 and will continue flushing hydrants as they work towards the end of the village’s water system near the Croton/Harmon train station.

“As the hydrant-flushing program nears your neighborhood, you may notice a slight discoloration of your water,” the Department noted. “This is temporary and poses no health risk. Simply run your water for a short period of time until it clears up. Do not do any laundry until you are sure your water is clear.”

If the discoloration continues, residents have been advised to contact the Croton-on-Hudson DPW by calling (914) 271-3775.
