The Suffolk County Water Authority this week began work on a 2,150-foot water main extension that will soon serve residents of The Meadows mixed-use development just west of William Floyd Parkway in Yaphank.
The new water main, made of 12" ductile iron pipe, will extend west from existing water main on William Floyd Parkway and south from Yaphank Woods Boulevard. The water main project is expected to be completed this week.
"We’re proud to bring a supply of safe and constantly tested drinking water to Yaphank’s newest residents," said SCWA Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey W. Szabo.
