Please be advised: Prospect Avenue residents south of Clark Place ONLY.

The Village of Maybrook has received verbal communication from Pace Laboratories and approval from the Orange County Board of Health that there is NO bacteria present in the samples provided from the water main repair on Thursday. A copy of the test results will be posted on the Village of Maybrook website as soon as received.

Contact the Maybrook DPW Superintendent Matt Thorp at 845 656 3122 or the Orange County Department of Health at 291 2331 for questions or concerns.

Loss of pressure in  Village of Maybrook.

BOIL YOUR WATER BEFORE USING

Bring tap water to a rolling boil, boil for one minute, and cool before using.  Or use bottled water certified for sale by the New York State Department of Health.  Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and preparing food until further notice.

This Boil Water Notice applies to residents on Prospect Avenue from the water storage tank to the end of Prospect Ave.

What Happened ?

At about 1:40pm on Thursday 4/18/24, the water system lost pressure due to a leak in the watermain that requires a section of the main to be replaced. When water mains lose pressure it increases the chance that untreated water and harmful microbes can enter your water.

Harmful microbes in drinking water can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms and may pose a special health risk for infants, some elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems.  But these symptoms are not just caused by microbes in drinking water.  If you experience any of these symptoms and they persist, you should seek medical advice.

What is being done ?

The section of the 6” watermain is being replaced.

It is likely that you will need to boil water for the next several days until the problem is fixed.  You will be informed when tests show that you no longer need to boil your water.

For more information about boil water events and using water for bathing, cooking, cleaning and other uses during these times see:  www.health.ny.gov/environmental/water/drinking/boilwater/

If you have additional questions, please contact:

 Matt Thorp, Chief Operator at  845-427-2222.

or the  Orange County Department of Health    at __845-291-2331_____.

The Village of Maybrook Department of Public Works will be hand delivering this notice to residents on Prospect Avenue.

Village of Maybrook resident Elizabeth Zefi

County Executive Neuhaus presents Elizabeth Zefi with Citizen of the Month Award for March
Zefi recognized for her leadership and volunteerism
Goshen, N.Y. – Orange County Executive Steven M. Neuhaus has named Maybrook resident Elizabeth Zefi as March’s Citizen of the Month Award recipient.
Zefi, a senior at Valley Central High School in Montgomery, was honored for her leadership and her volunteer work. Zefi has gained both leadership and volunteer experience through her involvement in multiple organizations, including Girl Scouts of America, the American Red Cross (Blood Program Leader), the Orange County Youth Bureau Youth Advisory Board (President), the Board of Education (Student Representative), Student Government Association (Secretary), and National Honor Society (Dean). Last July, Zefi attended both the Marist College Summer Pre-College Program in Business and the Mercy College Summer Leadership Academy. She also interns for Assemblyman Brian Maher.
In addition, Zefi has received the New York State Seal of Biliteracy in Italian and Spanish, the Girl Scout Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards, and the President’s Volunteer Service Award. She also maintains top grades at school and is awaiting college acceptance letters before deciding where to head in the fall.
“Elizabeth’s active and engaged leadership roles within various organizations in her community is wonderful. She is a great example to her peers that being involved and participating in your school and community is a win/win endeavor.”  Neuhaus said. “Not only is Elizabeth learning useful, lifelong skills, but she is also making friends and meeting mentors while contributing her own skills to the groups to which she dedicates her time,” Neuhaus added.  
Zefi is the daughter of immigrants; her father is from Albania and her mother is from Italy. The couple came to the United States in the early 2000s. Both of Elizabeth’s parents were small business owners; her mother had an Italian deli where she would take Elizabeth as a first grader, sometimes quite early in the morning. Her father owned a construction company and Zefi said, “He has been very successful in his career in America. While his success may not be millions of dollars, it seems like it is for us, as we know how hard he and my mother had to work in a new country.”
Zefi has been very involved with the Orange County Youth Bureau, currently serving as President of the Youth Advisory Board. She represented the County’s youth at the Association of NYS Youth Bureaus’ annual Youth Leadership Forum and Legislative Day. Zefi advocated to the Senate and Assembly Representatives for the value of Positive Youth Development Programs.
Neuhaus summed up, “I know Elizabeth will benefit from her experiences as a volunteer and leader here in Orange County and she will be an asset to whatever schools or organizations she chooses in the future. It was a pleasure meeting with Elizabeth and her family, and I look forward to hearing about the awesome things she will go on to do.”
