Here is an at-a-glance look at Bethpage Water District:
Established in 1923, Bethpage Water District is one of the oldest water districts on Long Island.
Our water comes from 8 wells on 5 pumping sites, with a total pumping capacity of over 11,000 gallons of water per minute. All wells combined pump approximately 1.4 billion gallons of water per year!
Our 3 large storage tanks can store 4.25 million gallons of water for periods of peak usage.
All of our wells and our distribution system comply with New York State Department of Health standards for public drinking water.
Today, the Bethpage Water District is still a relatively small water supplier, but it now has more than 8,800 accounts, a full-time staff of 12 and 107 miles of water mains within the district. We have all the efficiencies and technology of any modern municipal water system including standby generators at all wells in the event of a power failure.
The District also has and maintains more than 1068 fire hydrants throughout the District.
We serve an area of 5 square miles including Bethpage, Old Bethpage, Plainview, Farmingdale and Levittown.
Every gallon of water consumed by District users is recorded by computer and billed accordingly.
All of our water comes from underground wells. Unlike New York City, Long Island does not use reservoir water nor is it a part of a surface water system.
