Interns with the Town of Greenburgh visited the Edgemont Water Tower that is undergoing renovations to find out just exactly what is going on!




Residents who live near the water tank have experienced water pressure problems. And we are sorry for the inconveniences. it's been a long process-longer than expected due to the wet weather. But, the good news is that the painting is now completed. Inspections and cleanup will take place this week.  Disinfection of the tank and samples will occur next week and we anticipate the tank will be back in service by the end of next week. The tank is now in excellent shape and should stay that way for many years.
