The study area shown was expanded In response to stakeholder comments provided at the May 3, 2012 public meeting hosted by Legislator Kate Browning and SCDPW. The study area was expanded to include critical residential areas in the Forge River watershed and improve Forge River water quality.

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

"This area has been evaluated in the past and would run from west of William Floyd Parkway (Smith Road) to the Forge River along CR 80 – Montauk Highway including the business district surrounding the Mastic Long Island Railroad Station. The proposed service area could produce 300,000 gallons per day. The length of this system is approximately 2 miles. It is noted that approximately 5 acres are required for this particular facility with two pumping stations. Benefits include steps to improve the quality of the Forge River, revitalization of the area with the potential of affordable and workforce housing along with other area economic developments. Some related information is being prepared by DPW."
