NOTICE TO RESIDENTIAL AND SMALL BUSINESS WATER CUSTOMERS
COVID-19 STATE OF EMERGENCY MORATORIUM

On May 11, 2021 Governor Cuomo signed into law amendments to the Public Service Law that prevent municipalities and public utilities from terminating water service provided to residential customers, including nonresidential customers whose account serves residential premises, or small businesses, for non-payment during the COVID-19 state of emergency. Additionally, the amendments prevent municipalities from placing, selling or enforcing a lien for previously accrued water charges on or after May 11, 2021 until either the end of the COVID-19 state of emergency or December 31, 2021, whichever is earlier.

Water suppliers must notify residential and small business customers of the protections afforded under the law.

Please note that the amendments also provide that service termination and placing, selling or enforcing a lien for past due water charges is prohibited for an additional 180 days after either the COVID-19 state of emergency expires or December 31, 2021, whichever is earlier, for those residential and small business customers who certify that they have experienced a change in financial circumstances due to the COVID-19 state of emergency.

The law does not eliminate a customer’s obligation to pay accrued charges.  However, customers who have experienced a change in financial circumstances due to the COVID-19 state of emergency must be provided with the opportunity to enter into a deferred payment agreement without the imposition of deposits, late fees, or penalties.

If you are a residential customer, a nonresidential customer whose account serves residential premises, or a small business that has experienced a change in financial circumstances due to the COVID-19 state of emergency and would like to enter into a deferred payment agreement for water bill payments, please visit the Greenlawn Water District’s website at https://www.greenlawnwater.org/ or contact the Greenlawn Water District’s offices at (631) 261-0874 or by mail at Greenlawn Water District, 45 Railroad Street, Greenlawn, New York 11740.  Additional information and supporting documentation from customers seeking to enter into a deferred payment agreement may be required.

Please direct all other questions and concerns to the Greenlawn Water District  at (631) 261-0874 or info@greenlawnwater.org or by mail at the address set forth above.
