Mangano Says Plan Will Reduce County's Deficit by 25%
SEAFORD — Nassau County officials are spreading out into communities to tell residents about the plan to privatize the county’s water treatment plants. County Executive Ed Mangano held a meeting Wednesday night at the Cedar Creek Water Pollution Control Plant. Mangano said the water treatment system was a drain on the county and plans to have New Jersey-based company United Water take over operations.
A spokesman for United Water said the company was looking to upgrade the county’s facilities and to deliver excellent service to residents. While Mangano claims the change will reduce the county’s deficit by 25%, Nassau Democrats say the plan will actually raise water rates for homeowners.
