Water service is back to normal in Sleepy Hollow Tuesday after the village's second water main break in four days Monday led town officials to call for voluntary water conservation.

Crews with the village's Public Works Department were able to repair the break about 10 p.m. Monday, Sleepy Hollow Administrator Anthony Giaccio said.

"There is no more conserve-water advisory," he said. "Hopefully, that's our last water main break for a while."

A main on New Broadway at the intersection with North Broadway in the Webber Park neighborhood burst early Monday morning. Giaccio wasn't sure of the reason for the break but speculated it may have been related to the pipe's age.

The break followed another, unrelated break on Friday in a supply main near the village's reservoir at Tarrytown Lakes. That main delivers water to Sleepy Hollow, Tarrytown and Briarcliff Manor and caused the village to issue a conserve-water advisory. That break was fixed by Saturday afternoon, Giaccio said.
