SUEZ Prepares For Nor'easter's Arrival, Offers Safety Tips

As a Nor'easter heads for the area on Monday and Tuesday, SUEZ announced it is taking measures to keep the water flowing and are encouraging residents to store extra water in the event of an outage.

“Our priority is to keep the water flowing, despite any conditions that may arise. We have been carefully monitoring the weather and taking necessary action to protect the integrity of our facilities and water supplies,” said Chris Graziano, vice president of the SUEZ New York Division. “In addition, our emergency crews are on standby 24-hours-a-day to respond to any situation that may occur.”

Storm preparations include testing backup generators, ensuring that water storage facilities are full and having an extra supply of water treatment chemicals on hand.

Graziano recommended that customers check their personal emergency preparedness plans. “While we work hard to maintain service, we always encourage our customers to store extra tap water in the event that an outage may occur,” he said.

Here are some tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA):

  • Use food-grade storage containers.
  • Before filling containers with drinking water, clean them thoroughly with soap and water and rinse with clean water.
  • Seal the containers with the original tops.
  • Place a “drinking water” label on the containers and include a storage date.
  • Be careful not to store containers in direct sunlight or in areas near toxic substances such as gasoline or chemicals.

SUEZ serves about 500,000 people in Rockland, Westchester and Orange counties.
