Greenlawn water customers blast district over advisory
Some customers of the Greenlawn Water District say they were the last to find out about a boil water advisory issued yesterday.
The district issued the notice after E. coli was found in a water well in Commack.
Some say they only found out about the advisory in the newspaper or through word of mouth.
Alice Salzone, owner of Urban Coffee in Greenlawn, says she found out from the Suffolk County Health Department.
Greenlawn Water District Superintendent Bob Santoriello says the district printed out 14,000 notices and hand delivered them. However, he says the focus was on distributing them in the main impact area first.
The boil water notice is expected to be lifted this weekend.
