Discontinuation of Fluoridation to Town of Yorktown’s Water

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

Production from our Amawalk facility (approximately 40% 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 town of Yorktown and Somers. For additional information contact Matthew Geho, Operations Director at 914-737-3559 ext #111 or matthewgeho@nwjww.com.
