Suffolk Water Authority Sets Conservation Policy

The Suffolk County Water Authority is asking residents to conserve water usage by following an odd/even schedule.

Homes and businesses with odd-numbered addresses may only water their lawns on odd-numbered days; even-numbered properties can only water on even-numbered days.

Watering is not allowed between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., because water applied to lawns in warmer temperatures will evaporate more easily and be wasted.”In addition to odd/even lawn watering, the SCWA Board has recently increased the amount customers can receive as account credits for the purchase of various water-saving devices,” the authority said. “We also offer WaterWise Checkups, free one-on-one consultations between you and one of our water use experts to help you assess your water use and learn to use less in your daily life.”
