Village approves $720K sewer deal with Peconic Landing

The Village Board has approved an agreement with Peconic Landing concerning a sewer line hookup. The agreement is expected to bring in about $720,000 to the village. That revenue is expected to be used by the sewer district for capital improvements that may be required in the future, Mayor David Nyce said.

The hookup fee was calculated by pro-rating the amount the village usually charges: $15,000 for every 300 gallons of sewage per day. While the precise fee is calculated by the village, the figure of 300 gallons per day is based on Suffolk County standards, Mr. Nyce added.

The sewer hookup is related to a long-planned expansion at Peconic Landing.
