Aqua NY, which for years, was the major water supplier to customers in the Massapequa area has now been acquired by New York American Water. As reported in a recent issue of The Massapequan Observer, the new suppliers have gone public to assure customers that water rates will not change. Let’s hope so. We have also been contacted by anonymous readers delivering warnings about the ways of large corporations. In the entire controversy, residents in the Massapequa Water District obtained 5,400 signatures demanding the halt of groundwater contamination plume to local water supply wells. That vigilance is impressive and should always be reinvigorated if necessary.
