SCWA Reminds Residents to Clear Hydrants of Snow

Not Rated

With snow imminent for Long Island, the Suffolk County Water Authority would like to remind homeowners and businesses of the importance of keeping fire hydrants free of ice and snow so firefighters can connect their equipment without delay in the event of an emergency.


"Taking a few minutes to clear hydrants of snow and ice in your neighborhood could save someone’s life," said SCWA Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey W. Szabo. "In the event of a fire, every second counts, and we need our firefighters to be able to respond properly once they arrive on scene."


There are more than 37,000 hydrants in SCWA’s service territory.


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.
