The Westchester Joint Water Works was created under a special act of the New York State legislature in 1927, and is a non-profit public benefit corporation which operates the water systems of its three member municipalities consisting of the Village of Mamaroneck, the Town of Mamaroneck and the Town/Village of Harrison. Each municipality owns its own mains, hydrants, services and meters. The Water Works jointly owns the supply and transmission mains, pump stations and storage facilities, and operates the entire system as a unit.
The Water Works supplies water to over 14,800 domestic retail customers and sells water on a wholesale basis to the Village of Larchmont, United Water New Rochelle and the Aquarion Water Company of New York. All of the water is purchased from the City of New York through two connections, one to the Delaware Aqueduct in Yonkers and the other to Rye Lake, the eastern part of Kensico Reservoir in Harrison. The system includes over 250 miles of pipe ranging in size from 1" to 36", and provides fire protection through over 1,900 hydrants.
These Rules and Regulations define both customer and Water Works responsibilities. We are here to serve you, and welcome any questions you may have. Please feel free to give us a call, or contact us through our website.
