The Albertson Water District services a diverse community and supplies water to both residential and commercial sites. The District is capable of pumping 7.7 million gallons of water per day.
Delivering Excellence Day in Day Out
The Albertson Water District’s five wells pump water from far beneath the surface, with our deepest well being 455 feet deep in Long Island’s Magothy aquifer. This is channeled into a distribution network that totals some 50 miles of water mains. Connected to the distribution network is a 500,000 gallon overhead storage tank and two 1.5 million gallon underground storage tanks.
Residents serviced by the AWD can be assured that the water you drink, bathe, wash and cook with is regularly tested to ensure purity and safety. Your water meets or exceeds Federal, New York State and local regulations.
The Albertson Water District is an independent entity with commissioners elected by residents. You have local control and as AWD residents ourselves, it is always our goal to keep costs as low as possible.
As a resident, you are entitled to information. The Albertson Water District Commissioners and Superintendent Rudy Henriksen maintain an open door policy to distribute information. This includes regular water reports, newsletters, telephone and email access in addition to our new website.
Currently, of the Albertson Water District’s 4,069 connections, some 4.5% are commercial in nature. Commercial organizations can depend on the same quality and uninterrupted delivery of water as residents.
