Annual Water Quality Report 2017

A Message from the Mayor

Dear Hempstead Village Resident:

On behalf of the Village's Water Department, I am pleased to provide you with a copy of our 
provided each year to give you important information about the quality of drinking water in the Village of 
Hempstead, pursuant to state and federal regulations.

Water is one of our most precious natural commodities, and our drinking water resources are both safe 
and plentiful. In fact, Long Island has one of the safest and most tightly regulated public water supply systems in 
the entire country.

We must do everything possible to ensure that both the quality and quantity of our drinking water is 
protected now and in the future.  To achieve these objectives, the Village continues to implement projects that
improved the safety, reliability and cost effectiveness of the water system including leak detection; well screen
cleaning, piping, pump and valve replacements and security improvements. The Village worked diligently to 
obtain past grants and we will continue efforts to secure additional funding sources to protect our water quality 
and reduce the cost burden on our residents. 

In addition to projects now in construction, further improvements including enhancements to the water 
distribution piping and to cover the treatment basins are moving from the planning stage toward construction.
This report provides all the information required under both state and federal regulations, together with 
additional information that you may find useful. Included is information relative to the current status of the 
Water Quantity, Water Quality, & Water Conservation Program of the Incorporated Village of Hempstead. A 
summary of the 2016 laboratory testing results from the distribution system and a review of water conservation 
measures available to the Village's consumers are also provided. Laboratory testing data for each well has been 
placed in the Hempstead Public Library and may also be obtained at Village Hall, 99 Nichols Court, Hempstead, 
New York during regular business hours (8:30 - 4:15 Monday - Friday).

In the meantime, should you have any additional questions, please contact my office at 489-3400. Thank 
you for your continued interest in our community and our most precious natural resource.
