There was a water line break on Burd street which has affected the Clermont building, the River Club Restaurant and a few neighboring properties. The River Club has closed for the evening.
The Rockland County Health Department has declared a boil water alert for residents in the Clermont buildings. Properties in the vicinity may experience discolored water. If your water is brackish and not in the boil water alert area, run the water until it clears.
We will try to provide a timeline for the restoration of normal water use tomorrow.
If you are within the boil water alert area, please boil water used for consumption (washing fruits and vegetables, ice, infant formula, pets). Showering while avoiding open wounds or ingestion is acceptable. When washing dishes by hand, boil water first.
