City Lifts Water Restrictions

Effective Thursday, July 22 the mandatory outdoor water use restrictions in the City of Glen Cove are no longer in effect. The city would, however, like to remind residents of the standard water regulations, which remain in effect.

Water use, such as the sprinkling or watering of lawns, flowers or shrubs – the washing of cars or the use of a hose or sprinkler for any purpose with water supplied by the city is permitted only during the hours or 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. to midnight daily.

In addition, persons occupying homes with odd-numbered addresses may water on odd-numbered days of the month. Persons occupying homes with even-numbered addresses may water on even numbered day of the month.

If you have any questions regarding these regulations, call the water department at 676-5096 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday thru Friday or refer to the city website at www.glencove-li.com

The city wants to remind residents that all of this information was communicated through the city’s Emergency Notification System. The city was able to contact 86 percent of all published residential phone numbers within 46 minutes on the morning of July 4th when the first drought alert was issued.

The city of Glen Cove uses a Reverse 911 phone capability known as the Emergency (Community) Notification System.  This is a computerized high-speed telephone calling system that enables the City to notify you in the event of an emergency or an important community message. The system has the ability to access currently published telephone numbers for commercial and residential properties located in the Glen Cove (11542) Area Code. However, the unlisted telephone number, cellular number, beeper number or email address that you may prefer as your first point of contact are not included in the system.  Therefore, as part of our continuing effort to update and enhance our system, we are asking you to provide us with your current / preferred contact information so that, in the event of an emergency, the city can notify you and keep you informed.  This information will be kept confidential and used for telephone notification purposes only.

You can go to the city of Glen Cove website at www.glencove-li.com to sign up or simply stop by City Hall to fill out a paper registration form.
