6 February Water Update: restoration times / water available for affected residents February 6, 2020 By Patrick Mangan General 0 Our crews are still onsite and working on the water outage. Due to the emergency leak repair yesterday, when a water line was shut down, it caused a larger infrastructure problem that is taking longer to fix. Water service is expected to be restored later morning / early afternoon once the repair is complete. A water tanker will be available later this morning at Vails Gate Fire Company Station 2 on 4 Weather Oak Hill Road. Please bring containers to fill. Cases of bottled water will also be available for those affected by the water outage. We’ll post once both the tanker and bottled water are available at Vails Gate Fire Company Station 2. WATER IS NOT AVAILABLE right now, please wait until we follow up with a second post.

Warning: Residents being targeted by mail scam in regards to water tests *** WARNING – PUBLIC NOTICE *** The Town is advised of a direct mailing being sent to residents by a company called Hudson Valley Environmental Solutions. They are offering a “free water test” in an effort to sell homeowners a water treatment system for up to $6000 or more. They may also use the name “Rain Soft”. Please note, this company has not sought a solicitor’s permit to sell these products or provide these services to Town residents, and the Town has not sanctioned their doing so. In fact, the same company improperly solicited Town residents by leaving similar solicitations on people’s front doors and in their mailboxes a few months ago, prompting the Town to contact the New York State Department of Environmental Police who advised them to stop. Clearly, they didn’t heed this warning. Please don’t be fooled! If residents have any questions over this issue, please contact Supervisor George Meyers at (845) 563-4610.
