• 09-26-19 - Message from CGCAI - A number of people have expressed concern regarding the letter homeowners have received from SCWA advising homeowners to contact them to turn off the water meters and avoid potential problems with frozen water meters. Their fee for this is $90 and it is in addition to whatever you pay your plumber to drain your house for the winter. We are having a problem getting a definitive answer as to why this is suddenly being proposed. From what we can gather, and we have spoken to Chris and Clyde, they both feel that they cover everything when they winterize your house. It seems that there have been some instances of frozen meters on Fire Island (no info on specific numbers for communities) and that SCWA had to replace these meters for homeowners. Apparently SCWA absorbed the cost of these replacements and they do not want to continue to do so since these meters cost $1500 each. We have reached out to Fire Island Association to ask that they get an explanation directly from SCWA. Once we get it , we will pass it along.
