The Albertson Water District (AWD) 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. The District’s five wells pump water from far beneath the surface, with our deepest well being 455 feet deep in the Magothy aquifer. This is channeled into a distribution network of 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.
Rest 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. It is always our goal to keep costs as low as possible.
The Albertson Water District is an independent entity with three commissioners, one elected annually by residents. You have local control. Notices of pending elections are posted regularly on our website www.albertsonwater.org. For more information, contact the district.
As a resident, you are entitled to information. AWD Commissioners and Superintendent Rudy Henriksen maintain an open door policy to distribute information. This includes regular water reports, newsletters, website, telephone and email access.
Of the District’s 4,000+ connections, some 4.5% are commercial. Commercial organizations can depend on the same quality and uninterrupted delivery of water as residents.
