News About COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

South Farmingdale Water District has been proactive throughout the coronavirus pandemic and has been adhering to the conditions of the state of emergency for the public well being.

Important Points:

  1. The virus is not waterborne. Your water supply is safe to use in all ways. Water flow, water pressure and water services have not been interrupted by this crisis. As a result, there is no need to stockpile bottled water.
  2. It is imperative to be vigilant and obey good hygiene practices. Refer to Red Cross suggestions below.
  3. Stay home if you or family members are sick or showing signs of sickness including a cold, respiratory concerns, cough, fatigue or fever. Having one or multiple symptoms does not mean you have the virus.
  4. Any person who has been told to self-quarantine must stay home.

Paying Water Bills:

As of June 15, 2020, our office is open to the general public.  In an abundance of caution, anyone visiting the office must wear a face mask.

Payments for water bills may now be made in person during normal business hours. Check payments can also be left at any time in our drop box located in the driveway of our headquarters: 40 Langdon Road, Farmingdale, NY 11735.

Electronic payments can be made online by visiting our ‘Pay Your Bill’ web page.


SFWD is visiting homes and businesses to address customer needs, but before we enter your residence or business, we need to confirm with you that no one has been, or is sick, within your location. Also know that out of an abundance of caution, SFWD workers are wearing masks in the field, and will not enter your residence or business unless you and all present are wearing masks as well.

Thank you.

If you have routine questions or concerns please call us during normal business hours, Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. at (516) 249-3330. Note that this is our emergency number as well.
