Crew members excavate a trench in Greenport to replace 2,100 feet of ductile iron water main.

The Suffolk County Water Authority (SCWA) is undertaking a major water main replacement project on Main Road in Greenport. The area will see approximately 2,100 feet of undersized water main replaced with new larger ductile iron water main, as well as the installation or replacement of four fire hydrants. This work will result in more reliable water service for customers and emergency responders.


“Greenport is one of Long Island’s most popular tourist destinations, especially during the summer,” said SCWA Chairman Charles Lefkowitz. “It is very important that we ensure that the area’s water infrastructure is prepared to service its year-round residents as well as those visiting during the season. This project will ensure that everybody who uses water from these water mains receive the best water service available.”


Main Road is one of Greenport’s main thoroughfares, providing visitors and residents with access to a number of businesses and restaurants. Many of its adjoining streets lead to beaches and docks, making Main Road even busier in the coming months. Once this project is complete, business-owners will be able to rest assured that their water service is ready to withstand its increased usage.


The work is expected to be completed by the end of June.
