The County will be conducting a lottery to select 19 homeowners to receive a free advanced wastewater treatment system that greatly reduces nitrogen contamination – including free installation, monitoring and maintenance for five years. The pilot program is part of Suffolk County’s Reclaim Our Water initiative, a comprehensive plan to improve the County’s water quality, restore the region’s natural storm barriers by eradicating nitrogen pollution by means of sewering targeted areas and implementing advanced on-site wastewater treatment systems. Residents are encouraged to log onto County Public Work website to fill out an application.
Applications are due November 14, 2014. After a thorough screening process, a random drawing will be conducted to select the 19 qualified homeowners.
**Please be sure to obtain a site work only permit in order for Engineering to inspect any on-site restoration, ensuring you are in compliance with Town codes. Call the Town's Engineering Department at (631) 224-5360.
