Lower Westchester suffers temporary low-water flow
Officials say a broken valve was to blame for water flow issues in numerous municipalities across lower Westchester Tuesday morning.
County officials say the water infrastructure that supplies lower Westchester County experienced a shutdown around 6:30 a.m. They say a broken valve in a shaft at a reservoir pumping station on Crisfield Street in Yonkers caused the flow issues.
About 350,000 people were impacted. Yonkers, Mount Vernon, New Rochelle, Bronxville, Larchmont and Mamaroneck were among the impacted areas.
DEC officials say they repaired the problem, and full water pressure was restored in all areas.
