The Suffolk County Water Authority this week installed new water main that will serve 90 new customers for a new Ridge development called Country Pointe Estates.
The new main, installed on Jasmine Drive, Granny Apple Circle, Wild flower Drive, Mulberry Lane and Lilac Lane, includes nearly 7,000 feet of new water main, all six-inch or eight-inch ductile iron pipe. The project is expected to be completed on August 31.
"We are proud to welcome Ridge’s newest residents by providing them with some of the safest and most affordable water in the country," SCWA Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey W. Szabo said. "Putting our customers first means providing water that is constantly tested for quality. Our internal water quality standards are stricter than both state and federal regulations."
The Suffolk County Water Authority is an independent public-benefit corporation operating under the authority of the Public Authorities Law of the State of New York. Serving approximately 1.2 million Suffolk County residents, the Authority operates without taxing power on a not-for-profit basis.
