WHAT: In 2005, Suffolk County purchased a six-acre parcel of land that included a recharge sump. The ensuing sewerage expansion project in the Hauppauge Industrial Park contributed to allowing the park to become the largest industrial park east of the Mississippi. The project’s goals include more than 1.5 million gallons per day of capacity, a wastewater treatment plant that is expected to be operational in December 2012, and a sewer extension, with a projected completion date of August 2013. A panel of experts is expected to:
- Discuss the Town of Smithtown’s vision for the Hauppauge Industrial Park and how the availability of sanitary sewers is essential to the Town realizing its goals.
- Explain the various steps that necessary for individual landowners to obtain permission to connect to the upgraded sanitary sewer system.
- Detail how landowners can begin to plan for the highest and best use of their properties as the sanitary sewer improvements become a reality.

QUOTE: “Before the Industrial Park Sewerage Project was undertaken, the growth of our commercial and industrial base, which is vital to Suffolk County, had been slowed by a lack of available sewage treatment capacity. To date the progress of this project, through the cooperation of the Department of Public Works, the private sector and HIA-LI is a perfect example of how government and the private sector can work together to accomplish a goal that will help both the business climate and the environment. This sewerage project is essential to the density and utilization in the Hauppauge Industrial park. At this Executive Breakfast we’ll discuss how business and landowners can begin to plan for the highest and best use of their properties,” states Terri Alessi-Miceli, President, HIA – LI
