This summer, SFWD will issue a bond to fund capital improvements to improve the infrastructure of our water system and maintain our valuable community assets now and in the future.
At a public meeting earlier in 2014, the District informed consumers about the necessary improvements and their funding. The five-year capital improvement requested from the Town of Oyster Bay will have a minimal impact on taxes.
Some of the improvements include:
- Replacement of deteriorating water mains (some in service for nearly 80 years).
- Installation of an additional iron removal filter system at Plant 1.
- Upgrade of security systems at all wells and plant sites.
- Painting our 1,000,000-gallon elevated water tank at Plant 1 to prevent corrosion and to maintain the special interior coatings, which will prolong the life of the steel.
