South Orangetown Middle School Closed Today, 10-18

Early this morning there was a 12” water main break in front of the South Orangetown Middle School at the entrance on Van Wyck Road. School is closed today, October 18.  According to Bill Madden of Suez Water, crews were onsite as of 6 a.m.  There are now 80 homes without water.  Later today, Madden believes six of the homes and the school near the site will be issued a boil water alert for the next two days at minimum.  Suez is working with the school district to come up with solution for getting children back to school while there is no water. Madden expresses his “apologies for the inconvenience” and he added that crews are working fast and safely to restore services.
