Suffolk officials to issue water emergency amid severe drought

Suffolk officials are set to issue a water emergency amid Long Island’s severe drought.

The Suffolk County Water Authority says it will be issuing a Stage 1 emergency starting Friday.

Officials are urging all customers to stop nonessential water use, and more importantly stop the water of lawns between midnight and 7 a.m

Water Authority officials say it’s crucial that their water system has enough pressure.
