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limits the total amount of water that can be withdrawn from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.
