Sanitary Sewer Project

Sewer Route

The Sea Cliff Sanitary Sewer Project has been awarded to a contractor and work should begin prior to May. 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Pursuant to Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 202.6 and the Empire State Development’s Guidance For Determining Whether a Business Enterprise is Subject To a Workforce Reduction Under Recent Executive Orders, amended March 27, 2020, all water and wastewater construction projects are deemed essential construction services and construction may continue. Every construction site must maintain social distancing and safety best practices.

The first portion of the project will be Prospect Avenue from Sea Cliff Avenue down to lower Carpenter Avenue (aka Snake Hill) where it will connect to the existing sewer line on the Boulevard which goes to the treatment plant in Glen Cove. This will enable the connection of the previously constructed Sea Cliff Avenue line (which includes a portion of Roslyn Avenue) to be put into service.

After this is completed, additional sewer lines will be installed at:

  • 12th Avenue – from Roslyn Avenue to Prospect Avenue
  • Summit Avenue – from 10th Avenue to Sea Cliff Avenue
  • Fairview Place – from dead end to Prospect Avenue
  • 8th Avenue – from Roslyn Avenue to Prospect Avenue

While it is the ultimate goal to connect every property in Sea Cliff to a sanitary sewer line, it will take time due to fiscal constraints. It was decided many years ago that the priority would be our Business District 1 and the properties closest to our waterfront for environmental reasons.  Further, all current plans are for properties that can be serviced via gravity lines as pumping stations which, once again, are cost prohibitive at this time.

All properties that can connect to a sewer line will have a house connection put at their property line by the street. This house connection will be at a location and depth that will closely line up with the existing line coming out of your house. The connection from a private abode to the connection at the street can be done by any qualified plumber hired by the property owner at the property owner’s expense.

All properties that are part of the sewer design will be required by Nassau County to connect within one year of the sewer becoming operational.  Additionally, these properties will become part of the Nassau County Sewer District and will be taxed accordingly.
