NSWCA Welcomes Voter-Elected Water Commissioners from Nassau and Suffolk Counties

Re-elected and newly elected water commissioners from 21 local water districts who are members of the Nassau Suffolk Water Commissioners’ Association (NSWCA) were sworn into office on January 1, 2024 to begin their three-year term. Each local water district is comprised of three commissioners on each board.

NSWCA Past-President and Locust Valley Water District Chairwomen Patricia Peterson commented on the election results, “This election is always a superb example of local representation by and for each community as local voters are electing an individual who lives amongst them to safeguard their water, not only for today, but into the future.”

Incoming NSWCA President and South Farmingdale Water District Commissioner Ralph Atoria added, “I am extremely pleased to welcome all our new and returning colleagues to the Nassau Suffolk Water Commissioners’ Association.
