Port Washington investing in clean water

The Port Washington Water District will spend $18.4 million on a capital improvement plan to ensure high water quality standards.

The district plans to lease or buy land in the Harbor Park area to build a storage and booster pumping station, replace 20,000 feet of a four-inch water main, replace or paint the Beach Hill Tank, make improvements to the Hewlett Well No. 4 and add an aeration system to the Bar Beach Well No. 6.

The district approved the capital plan in April. The Town of North Hempstead Town Board approved the bond funding on May 3.

The average tax increase to residential customers is estimated to be $66.43 per year, District Superintendent Italo Vacchio said.

Vacchio could not provide the average annual amount of a household bill.
