The Suffolk County Water Authority has extended its water emergency to the entirety of its customer base, stretching from the Nassau/Suffolk border and to Montauk.
The emergency to date had included just SCWA’s customers on the East End.
All customers are strongly urged to stop non-essential water uses and to stop watering their lawns between the hours of 12 a.m. and 7 a.m.  Officials say that is when water infrastructure is pushed to the limit by enormous numbers of irrigation timers set to the early morning hours.
