Please be aware that the NYS Department of Health has not modified the requirement for annual back flow testing of residential and commercial sprinkler systems. We have recently notified those in the Port Washington Water District service area of the need to have their systems tested. However, given the current situation with corona virus, should a resident request additional time to have this test performed, the District will allow so. Residents simply need to contact the District office at 516-767-0171.

The spread of the coronavirus represents an unprecedented situation. The Port Washington Water District has been proactive in addressing the situation and adhering to the conditions of the state of emergency for the public wellbeing.

  1. Your water supply is safe from COVID-19: the coronavirus is not waterborne.
    Operations will continue as normal and water flow, water pressure and water services have not been interrupted by this crisis.
  2. The office is closed to the general public until further notice.
  3. Paying Water Bills:
    Electronic payments can be made by visiting our ‘Online Bill Pay’ web page.
    Check payments for water bills can be left at any time in our drop box located at the front door of our office:
    38 Sandy Hollow Road
    Port Washington, NY 11050
  4. District personnel will not enter any home unless it is an absolute necessity.
  5. It is imperative to be vigilant and obey good hygiene practices. For more information about recommended practices and tips for avoiding the coronavirus, visit the Center for Disease Control’s website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html.

If you have questions or concerns, call us during normal business hours:

Sincerely,

Board of Water Commissioners
