Safety & Security
FIRE HYDRANT USE
Fire hydrants are installed and maintained for your protection in the event of a fire.
If a hydrant is located on your property, please make certain that it is clear of all
landscaping that would obscure its view or access of our firefighters. In addition, please
contact the District should you suspect any unauthorized use of our hydrants.
The District requests that all residents who border well stations and other District properties
report any suspicious activity to the Nassau County Police. While there have been no threats against
our facilities, this is just another way of staying vigilant in our fight against terrorism.
On July 8, the Governor’s office announced that the New York State
Department of Health (NYSDOH) has proposed
new drinking water standards for the emerging contaminants
PFOA, PFOS, and 1,4-dioxane, which are polluting Long Island
groundwater from industrial chemicals that were used and disposed
here for decades.
We have changed our Backflow Program submittal process. Read
