Welcome to the West Hempstead Water District

The West Hempstead Water District has delivered a reliable, safe and high-quality water supply to the residents, businesses and schools of the community since 1926. Our water is pumped from 7 wells drilled into the Magothy Aquifer beneath Long Island. Our three storage tanks have a total storage capacity of 3.1 million gallons and we maintain over 125 miles of water mains.

The District encompasses approximately two square miles, including a majority of West Hempstead, all of Garden City South and a large portion of Franklin Square, serving over 32,000 people.
