Alert! Rhinebeck’s Mayor asks for all residents to conserve water 11:00am 8/30/2011
The Village of Rhinebeck is asking for everyone’s help in conserving water. Mayor Jim Reardon states “The effects of hurricane Irene have led to some water main breaks. We were on the scene on Rhinecliff Rd last night Sunday the 28th until 11:00 pm repairing two leaks that lead into the hamlet of Rhinecliff. Water service to the hamlet was restored and people may notice some turbidity in their water which is common when there is a break. At this point we are still not seeing a significant recovery at the water storage tank so it appears we still have some unidentified leaks. We are making every effort to locate these leaks, but in the meantime we are asking the public to make every attempt to eliminate all unnecessary water usage”. Reardon goes on to state, “I want to assure everyone that the water is safe for consumption and if there is turbidity in the water simply let it run until it clears. Thank you to everyone for their cooperation”.
