2023 Water Main Flushing Starting May 01
**Below schedule updated as of May 10, 2023**
The Water Department will conduct water main flushing beginning Monday, May 01, and will continue until all pipes in the system have been systematically flushed. Water main flushing prevents discoloration of water during the heavy demand periods of the summer months.
Slight discoloration may occur during the flushing period, but will settle out in a short time. Though the water is safe for consumption, it may stain clothes if washed in it. Residents should anticipate discolored water during the day and early evening. Surrounding areas may also experience some discoloration.
The neighborhood flushing schedule is as follows:
• Week of May 01 – 05: Greenacres (West of Post Road), Post Road, Fox Meadow, Old Scarsdale, Overhill, Berkeley in Scarsdale, Bramlee Heights, and Arthur Manor neighborhoods.
• Week of May 08 – 12: Greenacres (East of Post Road) Drake Edgewood, Sherbrooke Park, Heathcote, Murray Hill Middle Heathcote, and part of West Quaker Ridge neighborhoods.
• Week of May 15 – 19: East Heathcote, Secor Farms, Remainder of West Quaker Ridge, Scarsdale Meadows, Quaker Ridge, and Colonial Acres neighborhoods.
Weekly schedule updates will be available on the Water Department webpage. Please also note that the schedule may be adjusted or extended, particularly in response to weather conditions. If you have any questions, please contact the Water Department at 914.722.1138.

Water Service Line Insurance Mailing
It has come to our attention that a mailing was sent to Scarsdale Residents regarding insurance for household water service lines. This company has no relationship with the Village and the Village is not involved in any manner with this solicitation. Also please note that the Village is responsible for repair of the service line from the street (water main) connection to the curb stop (shut off valve) near the curb, the homeowner is only responsible for a leak between the curb stop and the house.
