Suffolk Water Authority issues water conservation alert
Residents of Suffolk County are being urged to conserve water.
This week's high temperatures have led to a drought alert, according to officials.
The Suffolk Water Authority is asking homeowners to change their sprinkler timers to between 9 p.m. and midnight instead of in the early morning.
Residents are also being told to keep all non-essential water use like washing a car and filling decorative waterfalls to a minimum.
