Local Officials Announce First Steps of Sewer Project

Islip, NY – Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter recently joined Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone and other local officials and dignitaries in Sayville to announce the opening steps that will lead to the establishment of a sewer system in the southeastern portion of the Town. The plans call for the initial assessment of project requirements along south shore communities in Oakdale and Sayville, as well another system in the Ronkonkoma area near Long Island MacArthur Airport. Supervisor Carpenter stressed the importance of sewers in this area, and how the installation of sewers will lead to an improvement in the quality of life for residents.

“We have a responsibility to be stewards of our environment, particularly the Great South Bay. Installing sewers will not only result in better water quality, but will preserve the conditions that help foster a $5.5 billion dollar tourism industry along the South Shore,” said Supervisor Carpenter. “The lack of sewers is preventing our downtown from reaching their full economic potential, and we’ll do everything we can to secure the future financial stability of these areas.”

Funds have been allocated from multiple levels of government to ensure that the project is properly planned. $4.5 million will be used to study the installation of sewers along the south shore communities, and $1 million will be used to for a similar assessment in the Ronkonkoma area. This preparatory work will ensure that the projects are “shovel-ready” when additional funding becomes available.
