Westbury Water District Urges Community to Conserve Water During Peak Pumping Months
May 26, 2023
Conservation and Preservation for Tomorrow Starts Today
Westbury Water District (WWD) is reminding the community that in the heat of summer it is important to be extra mindful of water consumption and conservation. May through September are the peak months for water pumping, when outdoor usage, including recreational usage, lawn and landscaping, as well as commercial irrigation, place the greatest demands on the District’s infrastructure. During these warm months, water usage is 8 to 10 times greater than water usage during the winter, and the excessive use of water places great stress on its distribution systems.
Water conservation not only assists in ensuring supply, delivery, and proper flow, but also reduces environmental impacts that have reverberating effects throughout our entire ecosystem.
- Westbury Water District fall under Nassau County’s sprinkler ordinance:
- Watering is prohibited between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
