The Suffolk County Water Authority this week continues work on a 3,355-foot water main replacement project in Brentwood that will improve fire protection and water pressure for the area.
The project covers a portion of Crooked Hill Road from St. Peters Drive to McNair Street as well as McNair Street and Leahy Avenue. Work on the project is being coordinated with a Suffolk County road project on Crooked Hill Road and Leahy Avenue for maximum efficiency. Under the project, old and undersized water main is being replaced by 12" ductile iron pipe, which, in addition to improved fire protection, will provide greater protection against water main breaks.
"This project is another example of the commitment of the Suffolk County Water Authority to bolster our infrastructure throughout our entire service territory," said SCWA Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey W. Szabo.
"I appreciate the efforts made by Suffolk County Water Authority to improve the lives of residents in Brentwood," said Suffolk County Legislator Monica R. Martinez. "The SCWA project and the county road resurfacing project are among the many projects proposed and approved that will enhance our infrastructure and increase economic development in the 9th Legislative District."
