There will be a Community Meeting held on Thursday, January 10, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the North Babylon Volunteer Fire Company 20 Hale Road, North Babylon, NY 11703. At these meetings, there will be a project update on the sewering of areas in the southwestern quadrant of Suffolk County, including portions of Deer Park, North Babylon, West Babylon and Wyandanch. The project is a crucial step in assisting the Carlls River Community as it continues to recover from Superstorm Sandy and spearheading efforts to reduce nitrogen pollution that adversely affects coastal wetlands, which protect communities from damaging storms and are critical to the region’s economic and environmental health. The project is part of Suffolk County’s Coastal Resiliency Initiative and is largely grant funded.
