The Suffolk County Sewer Capacity Study for Bellport, Sayville, Ronkonkoma Hub, Middle Island Corridor, Mastic/Shirley, Yaphank and Southampton (CP-8189) will evaluate the feasibility of sewering the seven “critical areas of need” that were identified by the Suffolk County Sewer District/Wastewater Treatment Task Force. The study was initiated in the spring of 2011, and is expected to be completed by the end of March 2013.
Study area-specific Feasibility Studies will be prepared to document sewage collection and treatment needs that are consistent with the needs of each area and the associated costs. The Feasibility Studies will identify those areas where the benefits of sewering outweigh the project costs. A Generic Environmental Impact Statement (GEIS) will also be prepared to identify the environmental impacts that could result from sewering, as well as potential mitigating measures.
Suffolk County has committed to working together with the study area communities to complete the Feasibility Studies. Meetings will be held in each community, and this website will be used to provide project-related information to all interested stakeholders.
In addition, a separate sewering feasibility study for the Flanders Riverside Corridor (CP 8192) was initiated in November 2011 and is expected to be completed by the end of March 2013. For the convenience of the stakeholders, information for this study has been added to the CP 8189 website.
