Fluoridation of Yorktown’s Water Stopped Temporarily

The Northern Westchester Joint Water Works will not be fluoridating Yorktown’s water produced at the Catskill Facility. The facility’s fluoride feed system is in need of repair and has been taken off-line preemptively.

From the town of Yorktown: 

On or about Jan. 2, 2013, the Northern Westchester Joint Water Works will no longer be fluoridating Yorktown’s water produced at the Catskill Facility. The facility’s fluoride feed system is in need of repair and has been taken off-line preemptively.

Production from the Amawalk facility (approximately 40 percent of daily demand) will continue to be fluoridated, until the facility is taken off-line in mid-January, for on-going maintenance projects. At that time, no fluoride will be added to the water. This will remain in effect until a new chemical feed system is designed, funded and constructed at the Catskill Water Treatment Facility or the Amawalk plant is put back on-line (spring 2013).

This notice only affects residents of the towns of Yorktown and Somers.
