Water Department Memorandum
August 30, 2017
On Tuesday, September 5th,
the Port Washington Water District will begin demolishing the Beacon Hill
Tank, which is adjacent to the Village’s South Road Tank. As a courtesy,
and with the approval of the Board of Trustees, the Village has agreed to
allow Port Washington’s booster pumps to operate on the South Road tank
level. This means that the South Road Tank will be shared by the Sands
Point Water Department and the PW Water District for several months until
the replacement tank has been constructed.
In 1998, the Village of
Sands Point carried out an elevated storage tank rehabilitation project for
the South Road Tank. At that time, the Port Washington Water District
allowed the Village to operate its wells using the Beacon Hill Tank. There
is a long history of cooperation between the water departments.
There are some ways you can
help reduce strain on the water system during the next months. If you would
reduce the amount of water used for irrigation purposes, it would make the
tank replacement process work better for everyone. Unless there is an
unseasonably warm and dry period in September, consider turning off your
irrigation system manually for the remainder of the season. If you leave
your system on, try cutting back 5 – 10 minutes per zone, which would be
helpful. Reduced irrigation should not affect your grass or shrubs at this
time of year. Note that the PW Water District has asked its consumers to
reduce water consumption as well.
For those residents living
near the tank, you might experience some discolored water from increased
flows and changes in operating conditions. This discoloration is from iron
and is not a health hazard.
