This is an important message from the Village of Lake Grove. A prolonged period of hot and dry weather is currently underway, and the Suffolk County Water Authority is experiencing unprecedented demand for water.

I am asking all Lake Grove residents to help by immediately changing the settings on your irrigation controllers, so they water every other day, not every day.

I also ask that you adjust watering times so that your systems do not operate during the 3am to 7am hours.

Also, please consider purchasing a rain sensor for your system so you are not watering when it is not necessary to do so.

With your help we will preserve our precious drinking water resources and ensure there is plenty of water to address emergencies.

Robert J. Scottaline, Mayor

Incorporated Village of Lake Grove
