Conservation

The majority of New York American Water customers live on Long Island. The New York State Department of Conservation established a goal for all Long Island water suppliers to reduce summertime water usage by 15 percent over the next few years to help ensure the long-term sustainability of our water source, the Long Island Aquifer. While this is a goal on Long Island, conserving our natural resources is an important practice, no matter where you live.

We believe this is so important that we’ve dedicated a section of our website to conservation tips, tools and programs. We hope you find these tools useful and that they help you save water and money!
