The Mastic and Shirley sewer project is moving forward, with the next stage coming for homeowners in the community. There will be a set of meetings in March that will allow residents to review the plans with engineers and designers.
Property owners living within the Sewer District boundary located north of Shinnecock Avenue are encouraged to attend on Thursday, and owners south of Shinnecock Avenue can attend on Friday. Owners that cannot attend either day can attend on Saturday.
Procurement is slated to begin in late summer, with groundbreaking of the advanced wastewater treatment facility scheduled to take place in January 2021.
Legis. Rudy Sunderman (R-Mastic) released a statement on the progress:
“This is an exciting time for the economic development and environmental protection of our community. Since the approval of the referendum for the Forge River Watershed Sewer District in January 2019, much work has been done to advance this project. The design team has been out in the community, surveying properties and assessing the area to finalize the design of the new advanced wastewater treatment facility and residential connections. The next step is a final homeowner review workshop, where the design team and engineers will sit with individual property owners to review the scope of the work as it relates to their individual properties. This project is moving forward as expected. All funding is being secured, and the final design is near completion.”
