USEPA Tier 2 Violation Notice

Friday, November 6, 2015

Pursuant to United States Environmental Protection Agency requirements, the Village of Scarsdale and the cities of Mount Vernon, White Plains, and Yonkers, which receive drinking water through Westchester County Water District #1, recently distributed in quarterly water bills a Westchester County notice titled, “IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER.”

All water users are encouraged to read the notice, recognizing that SCARSDALE DRINKING WATER QUALITY HAS NOT DECLINED BELOW THE STANDARD THAT WATER CUSTOMERS HAVE ENJOYED FOR DECADES – the supply is subject to the same water safety treatment protocols that have maintained drinking water in Scarsdale for many years, including appropriate chlorination to inactivate organisms such as giardia, bacteria, and viruses.
