Water Meter Endpoint Replacement Program Underway

The South Farmingdale Water District has begun and will continue in the coming months, to replace water meter endpoints. Endpoints enable us to obtain water meter readings remotely. The upgrade is mandatory due to the cellular industry’s imminent termination of 3G CDMA cellular service, which is the service that the old endpoints utilize.

In most cases the endpoint is attached to the outside of the premises and no appointment is needed. We will knock on your door to advise you of our presence. If you do not respond, we will attempt the work which takes approximately 20 minutes. The new endpoint will be placed where the old endpoint was. There should be no interruption to your water service.

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

Water Main Replacement Project

Dear Resident:

Starting Monday, March 21, 2022, as part of our ongoing watermain improvement program, the South Farmingdale Water District (SFWD) will be replacing water main in a portion of the district.

Please refer to the accompanying map for the area involved.

The project is expected to last from 6 to 8 weeks. During the day, you may experience an interruption to your water service. We will make every effort to inform you ahead of time of these interruptions, either verbally or via a written notice. We also will make every effort to keep the duration of these interruptions as short as is possible.

There will be a trench in the road during the water main installation. The road will be temporarily repaired at the end of each day. A final restoration of the roadway will follow the completion of all work.

The contractor is Merrick Utilities, Inc. SFWD personnel will also be on site during the project. Please feel free to seek out SFWD personnel on site if you need anything. You can also call our office at 516 249 3330.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience during this important water main project. If you want to speak to me directly, you can call me at 516 249 3330.
