Suffolk County - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Sewer System Connection at Heckscher State Park will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by NYS OPRHP to abandon the existing on-site sanitary systems and replace them with a low pressure sewer system connecting Heckscher State Park to the Southwest Sewer District. The proposed high density polyethylene force mains and lateral lines will be installed via horizontal directional drilling. Open cut excavation will only be permitted for the installation of pump stations, building sewers and force appurtenances. Limits of disturbance are within and adjacent to existing roadways and trails, to be staked in the field and approved by the NYS OPRHP regional biologist prior to construction. There will be no disruption of NYS OPRHP facilities' operations and vegetation will be restored using native species. The project is located on Heckscher Parkway in East Islip, New York.
