Patchogue sewer info session next week


The Patchogue River Watershed Sewer Project is moving forward to connect over 500 south Patchogue residential parcels to new and existing lower-pressure sewer lines. Suffolk County will be issuing bids for the construction project in late January. The project will include the installation of piping, on site grinder pump unit with control panel and closure of the existing on-site sewage disposal system on each property. The project is scheduled for the summer of 2020 and is estimated to take place over a two-year period.

On Wednesday, Jan. 22 from 5 to 9 p.m. and Saturday, Jan. 25 design engineers will be conducting a public work session at the Patchogue Theatre to allow homeowners to review their individual site plan and to answer questions. All applicable property owners are asked to attend one of the meetings so that the proposed layout can be reviewed prior to construction.

Construction of the project will be funded by state and federal grants. Upon competition of the project, the estimated operation and maintenance cost for residential single-family homeowners is $650 per year, which will include any necessary maintenance or repair of the grinder pump unit.

During construction, the contractor will need to have access to the property to connect the waste line to the new GPU and to pump and close the existing cesspools. The contract will be required to restore the property at the end of construction. Suffolk County is preparing an access agreement that will be provided for review and signature before construction.

If there are any questions please call Village Hall at 631-475-4300 ext. 175, or write by email to
