PIERMONT - A boil water advisor remained in effect Monday for parts of Piermont and Grandview in Rockland County.

About 800 customers of Suez Water were told not to use tap water for cooking or drinking since Friday. The advisory was issued following a water main break on Piermont Avenue, just west of Paradise Avenue, in Piermont.

Workers fixed the break over the weekend, but the water can't be used until tests by the county health department show it is safe.

"It's quite an inconvenience, and it's been three days," said Elliot Freifeld, of Piermont. "So we wish that we could get back to our normal routines."

A Suez Water spokesman said the utility hoped to be able to lift the advisory by late Monday or Tuesday at the latest.
