PSC to Investigate Spring Valley Adult Home Fire Over Weak Hydrant Water Pressure

The Public Service Commission is now involved in the investigation at the fatal Spring Valley fire last month that killed two, including volunteer firefighter Jared Lloyd. The Journal News says low water pressure from SUEZ-New York hydrants hampered firefighters’ ability to get water, and instead they had to run lines two-thirds of a mile from Route 45 to the Evergreen Court Home for Adults on Lafayette Street. Assemblyman Ken Zebrowski wants the PSC to study whether the village and town can handle increased development. SUEZ-New York’s Director of External Affairs Bill Madden says the company is deeply saddened by the loss of life from the fire and is cooperating fully with authorities.
