The Suffolk County Water Authority has completed the installation of 4,520 feet of new water main in Shirley that will provide water service to a new development of single-family homes and townhouses on the site of a former golf course.
The water main project, on Flower Road and Pond View Circle, will serve residents of the Colony Preserve development. Crews last week installed 8-inch and 12-inch ductile iron pipe in the project area to serve 75 new customers.
"We’re pleased to provide Shirley’s newest residents with a supply of high quality water that is tested constantly in our state-of-the-art laboratory," said SCWA Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey W. Szabo. He is pictured here, right, reviewing the water main extension plans with Pipeline/Paving Inspector Jeremy Brandt.
Brookhaven Town Supervisor Ed Romaine said, "I thank the Suffolk County Water Authority for installing the new water main which is essential to providing water service to the new residents who will live at Colony Preserve."
Brookhaven Town Councilman Dan Panico said, "SCWA hookups are an essential and often overlooked component of growth in our immediate region."
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.
