Westchester County asks residents to conserve water
The Westchester County Health Department is asking people in Elmsford, Greenburgh, Irvington, Sleepy Hollow, Tarrytown and Westchester Community College's Grasslands campus to cut down on their water use until Wednesday morning.
Many residents in the communities say they are puzzled by the request given all the recent rain in the region.
However, health department officials say the storms have caused numerous problems with the reservoirs, including a lot of debris in the water. Officials stress that the water is safe to drink, but since there's less clean water after the floods, the county is asking people use less of it for now.
