SCARSDALE, N.Y. - Some Scarsdale residents may experience discolored water over the weekend after a minor motor vehicle accident led to flooding after a fire hydrant was struck.
On Friday morning, an accident led to a vehicle sheering off a fire hydrant on Fox Meadow Road, causing flooding between Crane Road and Wayside Lane. During the accident and subsequent flooding, the roadway sustained damage.
The Scarsdale Village Water Department responded to the scene and were busy on Friday afternoon, on-site evaluating and repairing the water damage. According to village officials, repairs “will continue into the evening until the necessary repairs are completed.”
No service interruptions are expected. Temporary street repairs will be in place through the weekend, until Monday, Nov. 7 when permanent street repair will begin, barring foul weather.
While work is ongoing, some residents may experience discolored water, which does not present a public health concern. Once work is completed, all faucets should be run until the water returns to its clear state. There is no boil advisory or warning, and the integrity of the water main is intact.
Residents with questions can contact the Police Department’s non-emergency line at (914) 722-1200 through the weekend. The Water Department will be available during operating hours on Monday, Nov. 7 at (914) 722-1138.
