The Suffolk County Water Authority this week continues work on a 4,322-foot water main replacement project on two streets in the Village of Southampton that will improve fire protection and water pressure for the area.
The project covers Halsey Neck Lane north from Meadow Lane to Boyeson Road and Boyeson Road between Halsey Neck Lane and Captains Neck Lane. Under the project, old and undersized water main is being replaced by 12", 8" and 6" ductile iron pipe, which, in addition to improved fire protection, will provide greater protection against water main breaks.
"Throughout our service territory, from Amityville to Montauk, we’re increasing investment in water main replacement to bolster our infrastructure and improve service to our customers," said SCWA Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey W. Szabo.
"The Village of Southampton is proud to partner with Suffolk County Water Authority to improve the infrastructure throughout the Village and this is a significant contribution to our area," said Village of Southampton Mayor Mark Epley.
