Hicksville Water District Provides New Tool to Keep Residents Informed


Hicksville, NY (May 12, 2021)— The Hicksville Water District (HWD) prides itself on its relationship with the community it serves and continuously seeks new ways to proactively inform residents of District activities. To strengthen the flow of information to its residents, the District has launched a new interactive map that shows where water main leak construction work is being performed.

“We have a lot going on at the District in terms of infrastructure construction, maintenance and water main activity. While most of our work does not impact the daily activities of our residents, some of it does; especially if it’s not planned work,” said HWD Chairman Karl Schweitzer. “With this new interactive map, residents will have access to information, including the type of work underway, where it is taking place and why, right at their fingertips.”

This new tool shows specific areas where work, such as water main breaks, hydrant flushing or hydrant maintenance, is occurring. The live map is detailed, showing every street and individual plot of land in Hicksville, making it easy to locate any place in the hamlet at any time. These details provide residents with an accurate picture of whether or not they could be affected by the working being completed. With the click of a button, residents can know the location of any main breaks or construction and maintenance as indicated by an alert icon.

The map, which is available to residents 24/7, can be viewed on the District’s homepage at www.hicksvillewater.org. Should residents have any questions or concerns, the District can also be reached at 516-931-0184 or at info@hicksvillewater.org.
