Many, many calls in Nassau County.  Freeport had 10 or more workers, mostly in areas of waist-high water.  Long Beach had at least 6 . . . called for 4 engine companies in mutual aid, got one from Elmont (a right good piece away).  And this morning (Wed), there's a large fire in the Bay Park Sewage treatment plant in East Rockaway, unknown at this time if it is storm-related.  Mutual aid from Lynbrook, Oceanside, Rockville Centre, Lakeview & Valley Stream, perhaps more.  Residents in the southern half of the county cannot flush their toilets, according to Newsday.  County executive has called for water conservation to reduce input to the plant.
