Malverne's Water Issues

I was at a party last night and everyone was complaining about the brown water and the smelly water. I would like to know why the mayor and the board can not do anything about this issue...it effects all Malverne Residents.

The Village just paid out over $500,000 to the water company over a lawsuit they had against the village. 

How long do we have to put up with this water? Could anyone tell me why we can't we get a civil suit against them? Where do we go from here?

Why are you complaining on Patch? This is clearly an issue to be addressed with Village Hall. The Board of Trustees has known about the issue for years with limited success. One wonders if the major litigation between the Village Board and the water company had any adverse impact. You should drop off samples of dirty water at Village Hall every day untill the Village government gets serious about the problem.You deserve at least as much attention as Malverne Mel.

I've noticed a dramatic change since we first moved here...particularly in the last 2 years. The water is consistenly rusty causing bathtubs, sinks toilets to look dirty and smell. I've tried cleaners, deodorizes and clean the toilet bowl daily with minimal success. the water smells and certainly does not make you feel clean using it.

No edit function on my last reply: the word is "STINK".
