Sewer Project Turned Down by Residents

Sewer Project Turned Down by Residents

A sewer project that would have been very beneficial to the area was recently voted against. The project would have connected more than 450 homes along the six-mile Connetquot River to an updated sewer system. The cost was going to be $26.4 million. The project had significant costs but was going to be 100 percent fully funded by federal and state grants. This didn’t come without a downside though. Residential homes would add an additional $119 on average to their bills per year. Suffolk County isn’t the only place with these issues. Another community voted to sewer almost 2,770 homes

Climate Change Could New York’s Sewer System Be Contributing to this Issue

Climate Change Could New York’s Sewer System Be Contributing to this Issue

In 2018, New Yorkers experienced an extremely rainy year. The rain washed pet waste, plastic utensils and other street grime into an aging sewer system that sometimes can’t handle it. Every year the city releases 100 billion liters of untreated water sewage and stormwater runoff into its waterways. Whenever it rains heavily, the surge of stormwater forces the sewers to hit maximum capacity, causing wastewater to flow from the 100-year-old system into nearby rivers. A 100-year-old sewer system can barely manage light flow in certain places. The city is working on various ways to improve water quality but those efforts

Construction Causing Delays in Sewer Project

Earlier this year, the Lake Placid village board announced that the sewer lines beneath Main Street would be replaced and updated to protect a nearby lake from sewage leaks. There was a concern of a slight delay due to construction, but the major sewer project is now underway in Lake Placid, New York. The work and improvements, which the village has needed for years, consists of three phases. Firstly and already completed, a sewer line running underneath the High Peaks Resort and Lake House hotel was replaced and positioned higher in the ground so it would flow easily into a

The City of Keene’s Massive Cluster of Wipes Clogs Sewer System

The city of Keene, NY has experienced a sustained dilemma with the all-too-familiar wipe, causing blockages in the sewer system.

While many brands are labeled as flushable, they do not dissolve as toilet paper does. The are labeled with this redeeming quality due to a passing score on a test that requires wipes to begin to
