The Suffolk County Sewer District / Wastewater Treatment Task Force identified the Village of Bellport and North Bellport as a critical area of need due to environmental, economic or housing issues. The Task Force provided the following draft information to guide the development of the Feasibility Study:

"The study area incorporates the Village of Bellport and North Bellport along CR 80. The Village of Bellport study area will include the areas zoned as Business E and Professional Business which is in the vicinity of South Country Road and Station Road. It includes the Bellport Village Golf Course and parcels that extend north on Station Road to Kreamer Street and east and west of South Country Road between New Jersey Avenue and Academy Lane. The North Bellport Study area encompasses an area on CR 80 from Bourdois Avenue on the west to Bellport Avenue on the east, and extends south on Station Road to incorporate the Transit Oriented Development to Association Road. These areas would provide revitalization by allowing higher density for additional restaurants, affordable housing, medical offices and other needed services.  Sewering would provide revitalization by allowing higher density to construct restaurants, affordable housing, medical offices and other needed services. Environmental benefits would include elimination of onsite systems that have underflow to both Beaver Dam Creek and Mud Creek which lead to Great South Bay. Options for wastewater treatment include construction of a new wastewater treatment plant, treatment on the Brookhaven Landfill site or conveyance to a larger facility on County property near the County’s Yaphank treatment plant, or to the Village of Patchogue. It is assumed that the worst case would be the purchase of land and construction of a treatment facility with underground leaching pools in an area that is relatively close to groundwater levels.”
