About 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 11 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.
