Water main break closes Orange County Government offices

A State Police helicopter assisted in the search for the break

VILLAGE OF GOSHEN – A water main break in the Village of Goshen Friday morning resulted in the shutdown of all Orange County Government offices in the village. Goshen is the county seat.

Village crews with assistance from the county and a State Police helicopter located the source of the break and were in the process of repairing it. 

The village declared a state of emergency in order to proactively resolve the problem. The declaration required residents to conserve water – no outside use, irrigation and the like – so that the system can refill quickly. The village also advised residents to boil water for at least two minutes prior to using it for either drinking or food preparation.

The boil water advisory will remain in effect until the Orange County Department of Health declares otherwise.

Bottled water was made available to village residents Friday night.
