I was recently appointed Chairman of the SCWA Board after serving as a member since 2022. One of my true passions has always been public service and to be able to serve you in this capacity is an honor. From my time as a member of the Brookhaven Town Council to my role as President of the Three Village Chamber of Commerce, I have always brought my full effort into whatever role I assume. I promise to give no less as Chairman. I bring a unique public and private sector perspective to this position. In addition to my time in public service, and serving on numerous not for profit boards, I have spent the last 35 years of my career as a real estate manager and executive of many successful businesses. I intend to use that expertise and business sense to bring an important perspective to the SCWA.

SCWA is a truly world-class organization and is recognized as one of the nation’s leading drinking water providers. We are widely respected and admired across the industry for our innovation, efficiency, and solid fiscal management. Most importantly, we will always fulfil our mission to provide our customers the highest quality water. Under my leadership, we will maintain that reputation.

As an organization that is dedicated to continuous improvement, we recently adopted Strategic Plan 2030; a bold and innovative business plan that will allow us to serve you even better. Over the next several years, we will enhance our customer experience giving you even greater information and more convenient options for the services you need. We will enhance our already state of the art water quality testing laboratory with a new research & development team, so we can continue to provide you with the highest quality water.

We will achieve these goals while also keeping our rates among the lowest in the region. I know how much the bottom line matters, to every business and every family is Suffolk County. That is why I will remain focused on what matters most to our customers.

Every day, SCWA strives to provide you with the best service and the best water. Please contact us with any questions you may have about your water, your bill, or any other aspect of our operations.

-Charles A. Lefkowitz, Chairman
