Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - The Town of Southampton Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Dune Road Water Main Extension will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the Hampton Bays Water District to extend new 8 inch water main on Dune Road from the Ponquogue Bridge to a new metered interconnect with Suffolk County Water Authority at Tiana Beach in Hampton Bays, Town of Southampton, New York. The total length of new water main proposed is approximately 10,000 feet. The Hampton Bays Water District also intends to install hydrants and valves in accordance with standard requirements, along the new water main.

Proceeding with this work will provide a more dependable water feed to Dune Road and eliminate the possibility of another catastrophic failure of the water main crossing the bay. This main crossing has failed twice in the past five years by freezing in 2014 and breaking in January 2017. This new interconnection will be buried, thus protecting it from the elements and freezing.

In addition, the Suffolk County Department of Health Services have instructed the Hampton Bays Water District to eliminate the water main crossing the bay from service by April of 2022 since the main does not meet regulatory standards of construction.
