Generating Security with 100% Back-up Power Throughout District

generator122013_newSuperstorm Sandy was a rude awakening for most Long Islanders. During the storm and throughout the aftermath, SFWD continued to deliver an uninterrupted supply of water thanks to a series of back-up generators set-up throughout most of the District. Now, as part of the District’s long-range emergency preparedness program, SFWD has 100% generator power backup at ALL plants, making the District completely self sufficient during blackouts, brownouts or whenever the power unfortunately goes out. So in the event of an emergency, our generators will turn on automatically and we’ll continue delivering normal water needs with 100% efficiency.
