Glen Cove Sweats It Out With Water Restriction
During last week's record-setting temperatures, Glen Cove enacted its Emergency Planning and Response Plan instituting water restrictions banning non-essential water usage citywide. The restriction was conveyed through the utilization of various city department personnel. It was in effect for 48 hours and was lifted prior to this past weekend. In the event of a future water emergency, residents will be informed through the city's public awareness efforts including written and verbal notification. On a day-to-day basis, the ban will be conveyed via this program. The water usage ban is lifted automatically if the program is not implemented the following day.
