Responding to the Call…Maintaining the Water System 24/7

As we brace for the winter ahead, freezing temperatures combined with snowstorms can have a profound effect on the District in maintaining our water system.

In early 2018, the District responded to twice as many water main and service line breaks than the average year. No matter the time of day, our service crew braced the elements to repair the water mains and service lines that were broken. Response time to these breaks was less than an hour, and the repair was usually completed within four hours.

“We take our commitment seriously, and the District is ready to tackle whatever Mother Nature throws at us this upcoming winter season. I’d like to acknowledge and thank our dedicated work force for their extraordinary efforts and hard work in keeping our water system running at 100% efficiency…during good times and with weather-related issues,” commented Commissioner Kenneth P. Wenthen, Jr.
