What do you base your factless statement on? I like the sewers but how does pumping water out of the ground then expelling it out into the ocean ensure future generations drinking water? Are you not lowering the water tables when you pump it out to sea? Nice fantasy world you live in Mr Gore

Probably the best way to revitalize Wyandanch's "downtown" is to get rid of the h00kers and crackheads.

That's nice Belloney you pay for 2 mile pipe.
So who's going to pay for the expansion of bergen point (which is at it's max capcity) when all this new bussines hooks up in Babylon?
Oh thats not my problem... county property taxpayers will have to pay for your added crap. And the people of West Babylon who live by bergin point will get dumped on again when expansion is neccessary.

What about the residents on the West side of Deer Park? I pay over $9000 in taxes, and I'm tired of having my cesspool serviced.

Hey what about Deer Park? Mr. Bellone, you already sold us out over Tanger Outlets, which by the way got special approvals for connection to the sewers. Did you forget about us in between?

I thought the SWSD West Babylon Plant was at capacity. Or has the one-party system we have here in Suffolk County gotten together and waved their magic wand and found additional capacity?

Something stinks here and it's not from the sewer plant ...yet!

When I b ought my home on the edge of DP. I was told about the SW sewer scandal. But hope abounded that the $$ would be found elsewhere to complete the project further north.
Later residents were told money was also needed to expand bergin point,as it was at capacity.
Now there seems to be room for Tanger and Wyandanch but not N Babylon & DP residents to get sewers. I am tired of the lies.

You obviously dont know what your talking about. If we dont have sewers the waste getsput into the ground which contaminates our drinking water. So if we dont put in sewers we will have no clean water left to drink.

I think they should build a seperate Sewer Plant for Wyandanch and have the taxpayers of WYANDANCH pay for it. Yes, a "special district" This way, I who live in North Lindenhurst, does not support WYANDANCH....again!

Revitalization? I think Bellone envisions this project will bring sidewalk cafe's and four star restaurants to crackland. It is what it is, and no matter how much money you throw at it, it will always be a wasteland.

The good thing about the sewer line to Wyandanch is it'll be a lot easier to flush the wads of money they spend on the Wyandanch public schools.
