Honoring Commissioner Bill Wieck

When long time Water Commissioner Bill Wieck’s term ended in 2017, he left a legacy of public safety, fiscal control, water supply protection…and 26 years of meeting the needs of an expanding population. A proud US Army veteran, ex-chief of the Greenlawn Fire Department and Past President of Huntington Fire Chiefs Council, Bill shepherded the cost-effective refurbishment of Greenlawn Water District infrastructure through a dedicated preventive maintenance program that began in 1992.

Commissioners Jim Logan and John McLaughlin recently presented Bill with a plaque with the inscription:

“In recognition of 26 years of exemplary service to the residents of the Greenlawn Water District.”

Commissioner McLaughlin said of the lifetime Greenlawn resident, “Bill’s impact through the years can be seen in the efficient day-to-day management of the District, and his broad environmental background provided wise guidance on issues of conservation and sustainability.” Fellow Commissioner Jim Logan commented, “Bill Wieck leaves an indelible impression on every household in our District, whether that was by ensuring compliance, enabling plentiful supply, or cost containment. Bill’s leadership helped make it all happen.”

Bob Santoriello, Greenlawn Water District Superintendent added “working side by side with a dedicated and knowledgeable professional like Bill Wieck all these years has been a pleasure. His understanding of the daily requirements and the fiscal control needed in running a large district such as ours, have played a major role in achieving our goal of an uninterrupted supply of the purest possible water.”

Winners at the regional and State Fair competitions receive recognition plaques from the judging body, the Water and Wastewater Education and Outreach Committee (WWEOC).

Winter is Here!

In case you haven’t noticed, winter is in full swing!

With temperatures plummeting to dangerous levels, the District would like to impart the following information as water pipes can be particularly vulnerable to sudden prolonged cold spells. Every school science textbook teaches that water expands as it freezes.  This  expansion exerts tremendous pressure on both plastic and metal pipes.  At particularly cold times the pressure can be so great that the pipes can fracture and burst. And that is not limited to outdoor pipes, hoses, spigots, water sprinkler lines and the like.  Unheated interior areas put pipes at great risk for damage.  Crawl spaces and unheated basements, attics and garages, even kitchen cabinets can be problematic. Pipes that run against exterior walls can also freeze, especially when they are uninsulated or poorly insulated.

Taking Preventive Action Can Save Your Pipes!

  • Always know where your water service turn off valve is located, just in case you might need to access it in an emergency…like burst pipes.
  • Examine the exterior of your house and around your property for potential freezing problems.
  • Have a balcony with drains? Make sure they are free from leaves and other debris that could clog them and encourage ice damming.
  • Be smart. Open your kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors.  In that way you will allow  warmer air from the room to circulate around the interior plumbing. This actually can make the difference between free flowing and freezing pipes, especially on cold winter nights. (And be sure to move harmful household cleaners and chemicals out of the reach of children).
  • Garages are generally unheated so keeping garage doors closed helps big time.
  • Wrap your pipes carefully. The tape ends should be butted tightly and the joints wrapped with a proper insulating   tape.
  • Insulate all your pipes, especially in your basement. Pipe sleeves or UL-listed heat tape can be lifesavers (or at least pipe savers!)
  • Maintain the same house temperature day and evenings. Yes, this may may well result in a higher  heating bill; but if your pipes freeze, expand and burst you’ll  encounter far more costly repair bills for the plumbing, damages to the rooms they are located in… not to mention a great deal of headaches and aggravation to boot!
  • Keep faucets slightly open.
  • Attention all you snow birds! Are you snow birding or simply traveling? Either way, don’t turn the heat off! That’s a virtual guarantee of frozen pipes. Make sure to leave the heat on…and  no lower than 55 ºF…to discourage freezing.  Never take chances with frozen pipes. It just doesn’t pay.
  • Close the outside hose spigot valve in your basement.
