The District pumps the underground water supply utilizing 10 wells and is placed in two storage tanks – one elevated and one underground.
These tanks, which are regularly inspected and monitored by water district professionals to maintain the safety of the public, are designed to hold a sufficient amount of water to meet day-to-day consumer demands and provide adequate fire protection for the Village of Westbury. Water travels from the tanks, passing through the district’s 92 miles of water mains, then delivered to the consumers’ taps.
