A Message from the Chairman:


The Suffolk County Water Authority is proud to release its capital and operating budgets for the 2017 fiscal year. You can read the full document at the link at the bottom left of this page. We hope you’ll find the document easy to read and the important financial information about our budgets and operations easy to find.

This year’s budgets meet our current needs while also proactively looking to the future. With an eye on saving money on costly water main breaks, we have invested in leak detection technology and computer forecasting to prevent breaks before they occur. We are also investing in the next wave of Automated Meter Reading technology and will begin a full-scale pilot project under which we will design and build a filtration system to remove any trace amounts of the contaminant 1,4 dioxane from groundwater at one of our pump stations.

Our continued efforts to cut costs wherever possible have enabled us to keep water rates among the lowest in the country. In fact, a recent study of the largest water suppliers in the country listed the Suffolk County Water Authority as among the 10% least expensive. Our bond ratings remain among the highest in the state among utilities. And we’re equally proud of the water we serve our customers—our internal standards for water quality are stricter than required by regulators.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if we can answer any questions about the content of the budget document or any aspect of our operations.


James F. Gaughran - Chairman
