Still lots of work ahead for Patchogue sewers

Full story: Newsday 8
The anxious scrambling over a few million dollars to expand Patchogue's sewer system could serve as a chance to point fingers. Full Story

if the sewer system is key to the( patchogue downtown ) why are the leaders of patchogue trying to hook up sayville and brookhaven town bussinesses and homes.. why should the patchogue bay have to receive this additional pollution. has anyone checked into this closing down the swimming at corey beach or the sand spit

Agree with Eric, the great south bay suffers from Brown tide every year, so more sewage will not help.

the town, county & village need to clean up east patchogue, and not by puting in a new sewer - but cleaning up the streets. Steve Levy & Eddington why is that thether you promised to take down still there??? Why are the streets a mess? No sidewalks??? maybe the county needs to address that first?

the reason downtowns are failing has nothing to do with sewers and everything to do with big boxstores and strip malls

As usual Newsday did not print the whole story. The money for sewers given to Patchogue was part of a $10.4 million grant that should have gone to Shirley. Instead the Mayor in Patchogue petitioned Bishop, Foley and Lesko to give some of that money to Patchogue. They were given $2.6 million. Now Shirley's badly needed sewers will be delayed until the town applies for a loan for the amount that went to Patchogue.
Very unfair.

Patchogue's biggest problem is sewers?

The "brown tide" is in the housing for illegals (five to a room, pay in cash) not in the sanitation system.

Grow up, the whole bunch of you. Offer some constructive advice or shut up.
Mean spirited, stupid comments like yours are the problem.
