Woodmere Fire Service Support

Dear Valued Customer:

Paramount to New York American Water (NYAW) is the provision of safe and reliable water services to our customers as well as the first responders that we serve and support. NYAW was informed by the Woodmere Fire Department that there are six fire hydrants in the Woodmere Neighborhood that may have limited water flow. Therefore, NYAW has developed a strategy and action plan to improve fire service support in Woodmere.

The action plan is composed of three phases of which Phase I has already been completed:

  • COMPLETED - Phase 1 - Test 6 identified hydrants, located on Cedar Ln., Linden and Oak Streets.
  • Phase 2 - Oak St pipe replacement
  • Phase 3 - Linden St. pipe replacement

Please note that we have determined that three of the six hydrants will remain out of service and have discussed contingencies with the Woodmere Fire Department. Phases 2 and 3 will include the replacement of the water main that provides service to Oak and Linden Streets. Phases 2 and 3 of the plan have already been vetted and approved by the Nassau County Department of Health and was included in our pipeline replacement plan for 2019. However, NYAW has decided to expedite the scheduled 2019 projects (Phases 2 and 3) in the Woodmere area for completion as soon as possible in 2018.

NYAW will coordinate with the Woodmere Fire Department as we continue to make system improvements. If you have any questions regarding this situation or the planned improvements please call John Kilpatrick, Manager – Engineering, New York American Water, 516-632-2216.

We would like to thank you for your patience as we move forward with this project.
