Emergency DEP work at Washington Avenue and Sterling Place

NYC DEP is repairing a leaking pipe and valve in the vicinity of Washington Avenue and Sterling Place. 

Homes in a 5 block radius in every direction might notice discolored cold water. If you notice your water is brown or yellow, you are advised to run the water for a short time until the water turns clear. If it does not turn clear after a few minutes, you are advised to call 311. 

Work on this pipe is intended to go on through the night.

Some hydrants are open to help flush out the dirt.
