The Suffolk County Water Authority is in the process of installing 3,186 feet of water main along Noyac Road and adjacent streets to improve area water pressure for residents at higher elevation.
The project, part of SCWA’s initiative to bolster infrastructure throughout its service territory, began last week and is expected to be completed within the next two days. New ductile iron water main of 6", 8" and 12" is being installed to connect with existing water main on Noyac Road between Millstone Road and Locust Lane and between Long Beach Lane to west of Spring Lane. Water main is also being added to small portions of Millstone Road and Long Beach Lane.
"This work is being conducted to improve water pressure for customers in areas of higher elevation south of Noyac Road," said SCWA Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey W. Szabo. "We are constantly seeking ways to improve the flow of water in our distribution system, and this is a prime example of that."
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.
