Drinking water will be shut off for residents of Lido Beach at 11:59 p.m. tonight, Friday, February 1st for a two-hour period (11:59pm – 2am) to facilitate the repair of a broken water main along Lido Boulevard. Residents should fill a large container of water and place it in the refrigerator for use during this period of interrupted water service.
Neither the water main break nor the work being performed will affect water quality. The water will be safe for all uses both before and after the water main repair is completed. There may be some slight discoloration of water from dislodged sediment within the local water pipes. After water service is restored, residents may wish to run water for several minutes to clear discoloration. It is possible that water service may be restored before the two-hour period scheduled for the repair.
If you should have any questions, or require further information, please do not hesitate to call the Department of Water’s 24-hour emergency number at 516-794-8181.
Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
