Davis Park Water Supply, Restored this Morning,
Completes Restoration of Water
The Suffolk County Water Authority announced today that the water supply is safe to drink in all Fire Island communities served by SCWA.
Fire Island, which was impacted severely by Superstorm Sandy, was the only area in SCWA’s service territory to incur significant service interruptions as a result of the storm. SCWA workers had been restoring the water supply to Fire Island working west to east, and the Davis Park water supply became the last system to be restored this morning.
Returning Fire Island residents are advised to run their water for ten to fifteen minutes before drinking as a precautionary measure.
Fire Island residents with any questions about their water should call the SCWA call center at (631) 698-9500.
The Suffolk County Water Authority is an independent public-benefit corporation operating under the authority of the Public Authorities Law of the State of New York. Serving approximately 1.2 million Suffolk County residents, the Authority operates without taxing power on a not-for-profit basis.
