Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing

Suffolk County - The New York State Governor's Office of Storm Recovery (NYS GOSR), as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Forge River Watershed Sewer Project, Mastic-Shirley Proposed Sewer District. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on May 22, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. at the Mastic Fire Department, 1080 Mastic Road, Mastic, NY, 11950. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until June 1, 2018.
The Draft EIS is available from the Town of Brookhaven Town Clerk; Suffolk County Division of Planning; the East Brookhaven Free Library; the Mastic Moriches Shirley Community Library and on line at:

The Proposed Activity will occur in the hamlets of Mastic and Shirley, in the Town of Brookhaven, New York. The project area encompasses approximately 1,600 acres in densely developed residential and commercial area, and includes a 13.7 acre undeveloped parcel and a 17 acre undeveloped parcel, both of which are located on the Brookhaven Calabro Airport, north of Sunrise Highway (New York State Route 27). The primary purpose of the Proposed Activity is to mitigate short-term, repetitive, adverse impacts on human life and property associated with on-site wastewater treatment system (OWTS) failures in the Forge River watershed in Suffolk County, New York, caused by natural hazards. The secondary purpose is to mitigate long-term, adverse impacts associated with such failures on surface waters and coastal wetlands that reduce the ability of these waters and wetlands to provide natural protection against storm surge.

The Proposed Activity would establish a Mastic-Shirley Sewer District and construct and operate a collection system connected to approximately 3,400 parcels. The system would include a combination of gravity sewers and low-pressure sewers, a conveyance system consisting of multiple pump stations and force mains, and an Advanced Wastewater Treatment Facility (AWTF) on the Brookhaven Calabro Airport site. The AWTF would use either a Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) or Sequencing Batch Reactor (SBR) treatment process. The Proposed Activity would result in combined average daily flows of approximately 1.4 million gallons per day, which, after treatment, would flow to subsurface leaching fields. Once the parcels are connected to the sewer district and the system is operating, existing OWTS would be removed or abandoned in accordance with Section 740-14 of the Suffolk County Code, Discontinued use of cesspools and septic systems.

The project is located Town of Brookhaven, New York.
