The Suffolk County Water Authority released the following statement from Chairman Charles Lefkowitz on the earthquake that impacted the northeast United States on April 5th:


“SCWA’s initial survey of its facilities did not show any damage from the earthquake. All well fields are being reviewed to ensure there were no impacts. Shifting ground has the potential to impact our distribution system. With over 6,000 miles of water mains, SCWA will take increased measures to monitor through the next few days for main breaks. If customers see pooling water with no visible source and suspect there may be a main break, they should contact us at (631) 698-9500.”
