The Bethpage Water District urges local residents to conserve water during the summer’s high temperatures and dry weather. Reducing water usage during the peak hours of 2:00 a.m. through 6:00 a.m., as well as following the odd-even regulations for lawn sprinkling, could make a significant impact to the water conservation efforts.
“As the summer heat quickly approaches, we are asking that residents be conscious of their water use,” said Bethpage Water Commissioner and Chairman William J. Ellinger. “With these water conservation procedures in mind, we strive to continue serving our residents the clean, high quality water they need to live out the summer with ease.”
Nassau County’s odd-even sprinkler regulation requires residences with a house number that is even—or is not numbered—water the lawn on even days. Conversely, residences with a house number that is odd, should water the lawn on odd days.
The Bethpage Water District provides residents the following suggestions to help minimize water usage in homes:
· Check faucets and pipes for leaks
· Minimize shower time
· Water lawns only when needed
· Wash only full loads in dishwashers and laundry machines
