During the month of August, the Suffolk County Water Authority completed approximately 10 water main extensions in communities on the East End.
The projects ranged from Southampton to Montauk and included varying sites, from a 243-foot extension on Washington Drive in Montauk to a 3,216-foot project on Millstone Brook Road and nearby streets in Southampton. In total, SCWA had projected to add more than 8,000 feet of water main to its existing service territory.
The main extension projects, from west to east include:
3,216 feet on Millstone Brook Road, Barkers Island Road and Whites Lane in Southampton.
328 feet on Tuckahoe Lane in Southampton.
477 feet on Cedarberry Lane in North Sea.
300 feet on Wood Edge Court in Southampton.
654 feet on Schwenks Road in Water Mill.
1,011 feet on Ruggs Path in Noyac.
442 feet on Erica’s Lane in Sagaponack.

Suffolk County Water Authority public water is subject to rigorous tests from the New York State Department of Health and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. According to information provided by the SCWA, adding the water main extensions increases water pressure and the availability of nearby hydrants, improving fire protection and possibly lowering a homeowner’s insurance.
Those who use public water, do not need to maintain a well pump, nor use water softeners or filters, according to the SCWA.
