The Port Washington Water District (PWWD) is seeking to build an additional treatment facility at the Christopher Morley Parkwell well site. Approval for the land use provides the District with the space needed to construct the state-of-the-art facility that will effectively remove emerging contaminants 1,4-dioxane and PFOA/PFOS from the community’s drinking water. This well site produces approximately 60 percent of the water within the Port Washington Water District’s service territory, including St. Francis Hospital.

PWWD will be hosting three (3) public forums/ information sessions regarding this topic and encourage District consumers to attend one of the sessions to learn more about the topic.  Each of the sessions will be conducted through a webinar lead by the Port Washington Water District.  Q&A will be held at the end of each session.

In accordance with Federal and State regulations, the Port Washington Water District produces an Annual Drinking Water Quality Report. This in-depth report is filled with important information regarding water quality, cost, sources, treatment and more. The most recent Drinking Water Quality Report can be found on our Water Quality page and can be viewed online as a PDF.

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.
