Stay Informed in Case of a Water-Related Emergency
Water is the most precious natural resource there is, and it is extremely important in everyday life. The Plainview Water District (PWD) Board of Commissioners would like to remind the Plainview-Old Bethpage community of the importance of signing up and/or confirming their contact information with the District. This accurate contact information allows residents to receive emergency notifications about their water service in case a situation should ever occur.
“The Plainview Water District has the necessary systems in place to immediately reach our residents if a water-related emergency were to occur, however, we can only do so if we have the up-to-date contact information,” said PWD Chairman Marc Laykind. “The well-being of our community is extremely important to all of us at the District, and being able to inform our residents as quickly as possible of a water emergency is crucial.”
The PWD utilizes a reverse-911 system, provided by SwiftReach Networks, which is capable of delivering urgent messages directly to residents via phone call, text, or email. Once a resident or local business owner submits their up-to-date contact information, the system will be able to contact them with information regarding a water-related emergency in their area. All contact information is securely stored in PWD databases and will only be used in the case of an emergency.
To ensure a resident is signed up to receive emergency notifications or to confirm their contact information is accurate, please visit https://plainviewwater.org/resources/emergency-notification/ and fill out the appropriate form. The contact information received will only be accessed in the aforementioned circumstances of a water-related emergency and will be kept confidential. Residents can also update or confirm the information on file by calling the District at (516) 931-6469.
