DPW Construction Project - North Campus Entrance

The Suffolk County Department of Public Works has begun a NYS Department of Environmental Conservation mandated project for improvements to the wastewater treatment plant located on their property near the North Campus entrance.

This project will, among other benefits, help to reduce the level of nitrogen that enters the Long Island Sound. As part of the work needed to clear the footprint for this project workers have removed trees in the area of the existing wastewater treatment plant. The new de-nitrification equipment will be housed in a building being constructed in the area that is being cleared. NYSDEC has reviewed the plans and is aware of the work being performed for this wastewater treatment plant improvement project.

As the project moves forward there may be a need to, at times, modify traffic patterns in the North Campus Entrance area and as that information is received it will be distributed to the campus community.
