A Message from the Chairman:
I’m pleased to announce that the Suffolk County Water Authority Board has approved a capital budget for the fiscal year ending May 31, 2016 that increases investment in the maintenance of and improvements to our distribution system by more than $2 million, which will ensure that SCWA customers continue to receive the highest quality water. The Board also authorized an increase of more than $4 million over the current capital budget for the replacement of water main, which will provide additional protection against future water main breaks, and a $750,000 increase for technological development, which will enable SCWA to take the first steps toward the implementation of mobile workforce technology, which will greatly improve the efficiency of our operations.
These investments are key to the Authority’s future, as we look for new ways to better serve our customers. Taking these proactive steps now will save a considerable amount of money in the long run and enable us to continue to be one of the most respected and cost-conscious water suppliers in the country.
James F. Gaughran - Chairman
