A “do not drink the water” warning for the 50 homes in the Village Mill I condominium in Haverstraw village was delayed more than four hours because United Water New York did not notice the complex was in the area affected by a water main break.
Larry Palant, the condo’s property manager, said today that he contacted United Water early Friday afternoon after reading about the water advisory on The Journal News’ Web site. The warning cited the area that included Picariello Drive, Spring Street, Victor Avenue, Rela Avenue, Rhoda Avenue, Harrigan Lane, Robbin’s Court and Gurnee Court. His complex is at the corner of Rela and Spring, but Village Mill residents didn’t receive any notice.
Palant said he believed that because the complex residents had mailing addresses of 1 to 50 Village Mill, instead of a street name, the water company did not immediately recognize the complex was affected.
