Ensuring that its residents are as informed as possible when it comes to their water is a top priority for the Port Washington Water District. This is why the PWWD will be hosting a pair of meetings on Tuesday, May 28 to discuss an upcoming bond proposal that the District would use to further improve its water treatment practices. Both in-person and virtual meeting options will be available, and all residents are invited to attend.
 
The first meeting will be in-person in the Lapham Room of the Port Washington Public Library, located at 1 Library Drive in Port Washington, at 9:30 a.m. This meeting will also be viewable as a livestream on the District’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/pwwaterdistrict. The virtual meeting will take place on Zoom at 7 p.m. Residents can register for these meetings using the form below. 
 

Thank you to all hosts and residents who participated in the PWWD and ReWild Long Island’s 2023 Sustainable Garden Tour! It was fantastic to see so many people tour our community and pick up ideas on how they can promote biodiversity and save water while keeping their gardens beautiful this summer!

On February 16, 2023, the Port Washington Water District, alongside the Roslyn District and Irrigation Association of New York, hosted an Irrigation Contractor Training Webinar to educate local irrigation contractors on how to best help our residents conserve water during peak irrigation season. Their help is vital in ensuring that District residents are set to comply with mandatory 2023 irrigation requirements as we face reduced capacity with multiple wells offline while the District constructs treatment to address emerging contaminants.

It was wonderful to see so many irrigation contractors committed to conserving our precious water source and we are excited to see what the future holds. The webinar can be viewed in the video below.
