Letter From Legislator Spencer On Northport Sewage Treatment Plant
February 29, 2012
Today we took the next step in securing funding to upgrade the Northport Sewage Treatment Plant. Accompanied by Northport Village Mayor George Doll, Suffolk County Deputy Presiding Officer Wayne Horsley, Suffolk County Planning Director Sarah Lansdale, Town of Huntington Councilman Gene Cook and Deputy Supervisor Patricia Del Col, I toured the plant and was briefed on the details of the Wastewater Facility Upgrade Plan. Surrounded by community and business leaders, engineers and plant operators, we had a hearty discussion about the imminent need for fund ing to resolve the critical environmental and fiscal issues facing the residents of Northport and the surrounding neighborhoods. The meeting was productive and encouraging. We will need to work together to fight for this funding and I welcome the public support for this important project. Shortly, we will file our formal application to the Suffolk County Sewer Infrastructure Review Committee. This project has public health and financial implications that will impact the Town of Huntington for many years. Please feel free to provide us with your input and suggestions by contacting my district office at (631)854-4500.
