As mandated by the New York State Department
of Environmental Conservation, the Manhasset-Lakeville Water
District operates under an annual pumpage cap. The cap
limits the total amount of water that can be withdrawn from
the aquifers serving our District. In order to satisfy our
permit to operate a public
water supply, the District enacted a water conservation
plan. The existing plan limits lawn watering to every other
day, prohibits the use of water for once-through cooling,
bans the washing of pavement, and promotes the use of low
flow fixtures within the home.
In addition, the charges for water are based
upon the above conservation driven block rate chart. In the
winter months the District pumps an average of five million
gallons per day. In the summer months the District pumps an
average of nine million gallons per day. The new rates will
take effect on January 1, 2019.
