BRIARCLIFF MANOR, N.Y. -- Philip Zegarelli, village manager of Briarcliff Manor, has updates on news around the village.
Village Hydrant Flushing: In this upcoming hydrant flushing phase, running from Monday, July 27 to Friday, July 31, starting at about 9 a.m. and continuing to 4 p.m., our crews will flush individual hydrants in specific areas. Again, this is always subject to daily events and conditions. The areas to be flushed are: Elm Road, Tuttle Road, Alder Drive, Butternut Road, Plumwood Road, Lodge Road, Central Drive, Central Drive West, Locust Road, Cypress Lane, Cherry Hill Court. As a result of this work, residents can expect discolored water at any time, but particularly, during the day starting from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Even if discolored, continuing laboratory testing has indicated that in the past the water has contained no harmful bacteria.
