Water District Celebrates Renovations

The Hicksville Water District’s Board of Water Commissioners Chairman Nicholas Brigandi has announced the completion of renovations of Plant #6 on Kuhl Avenue. This renovation is part of the district’s major capital investment plan to improve services for local residents and businesses.

The commissioners will celebrate the completion of Plant #6 renovations with a ribbon cutting on Saturday, Aug. 10, at 10:30 a.m. This marks the first of many infrastructure improvements and restorations the district is currently planning to implement in the next five years. The district’s commitment to maintain residents’ low cost-per-gallon is achieved by responsibly investing tax dollars in a system-wide capital improvement plan.

“These improvements will benefit the community tremendously by increasing the quality and efficiency of water delivery,” said Chairman Brigandi. “Infrastructure investment and long term capital planning will help to maintain the low cost of water for our residents.”

Several local officials will be in attendance, as the ribbon cutting represents a significant accomplishment from the district to the community. The renovations at Plant #6 include installation of a new filtration system for the removal of nitrates and trace organics as well as replacement of equipment such as piping and electrical controls.

“We are so thrilled to launch the new and improved Plant #6,” said Chairman Brigandi. “This is the first of many improvements the District will undergo to ensure the best water quality for all Hicksville residents.”
