Southampton Town Expects Official Proposal From SCWA To Manage Hampton Bays Water System

Great to hear the comments from both sides of the HB water problem. But an opinion is not needed. What is needs is....clean and healthy water!. Water is essential for our life and the future of our children! OUr children deserve a healthy future from our efforts now. Our water supplier must have a knowledgeable and competent staff. They must be trained and keep their training current with information from the other government agencies that oversee the quality of our drinking water. We must have lab results in a timely manner—not in six weeks! A professional hydrologist states that 2 weeks is the maximum length of time for lab results!

And how about the cost of HB community buying bottled water? Bottle water and we are paying for water that we cannot drink!!!

Read Newsday Augustus 31, “Federal bill for toxic cleanup gets Senat Ok.”.
“The Suffolk Water Authority filed a awsuit in November 2017 against firefighting foam manufacturers. June, New York Staets sued 6 companies that manufactured foam.” Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand sponsored the amendment for the AirForce to reimburse communities like Westhampton with its PFAS toxins. The bill must pass the House.”

The Hampton Bays community needs reimbursed, also!

Southampton Town Board Expects To Receive Official Proposal From SCWA Next Week

Resident tax, where are you getting your information about

An immediate reply to any problems with SCWA.... now people in H Bays have had black water since July 4!!! Is that an immediate reply to a problem?

Rates go up...read the posts here...the rates are so low and can easily be increased within reason for all households.
And the cost of needed improvements due to not maintaining equipment and not updating equipment can be expensive and the town can obtain a bond that will spread the cost over a long term period. LIke your home mortgage is done.

COME TO THE PUBLIC MEETINGS IN OCTOBER AND NOVEMBER TO HEAR THE TRUTH ABOUT THE SCWA and what they can do for H Bays and how much it will cost.
DONT READ THESE COMMENTS AND THINK THEY ARE BASED ON FACTS.

SOME OF THESE COMMENTS ARE JUST OPINIONS MEANT TO SWAY YOU. " Oct 2, 18 8:50 PM

THE H B Water employees will keep their jobs. This is not about them being not appreciated. We appreciate their work and efforts. We appreciate Mr. King and his many civic activities that have helped our community. He will keep his job.

The infrastructure should have been updated ages ago. Let’s fix the problem and move forward.
No more opinion not based on facts. Face the situation and let’s fix it.

Read the article above and read the facts about the water rates.
The price difference is very small.

Immediate reply to any problems? Black water since July is not an immediate reply. I feel sorry for the households and businesses with black water for 3 months.

Schiavoni Proposal To Limit Recreation Space Shot Down

Can we please post comments that do not contain political slams. Since we aren’t mind readers of Tommy John or others, we should stick to his voting record and his statements.

Can you state what his voting record is?
" Oct 12, 18 9:17 PM

Here is what I learned in H S Goverment class:

Elected officials can vote in four ways.

1. They vote according to what the majority of their constituents desire.
2. They vote according to what a group of people persuade them to vote
3.They do not consider what is best for their community or what their community
needs. They vote according to what they think is best for the community without listening to their community.
4. They gather information, listen to experts and have enough information to vote for what is best for their community.
They can vote in any of these ways depending on the issue, etc.
So, let’s think like the elected official and try to understand why they vote the way they do. " Oct 12, 18 9:35 PM

Concerns Swell Over Future Of Hampton Bays Water District Employees With SCWA Takeover

HOW ABOUT THE HEALTH OF H B ???? That is the highest priority and why isn’t the Suffolk COunty Health Department and the New York STate Health Department telling us about our health concerns about the HB water??

In these times of economic concerns, the employees have jobs. Other parts of the country, there is no guarantee of jobs when one company sells to another. Or when one company defaults to a stronger company that accomplish the job in a better and more efficient manner......

speed of solutions....
is important when we need our health with every drop of water we drink!!!

Speed .....of transferring the water treatment to a larger, better equipped company.

Why do we have agencies to watch over our health and environment? Why do we have to be constantly yelling and screaming when things to wrong to keep ourselves healthy!!!!!

Arent’ these agencies being paid to keep us safe? Healthy? Isnt that there job??" Oct 29, 18 8:02 PM

Unions have destroyed this country.
" Oct 29, 18 8:03 PM

Employees who will gain a larger paycheck...that was stated in the article written before this one...

.and you don’t have to get transferred out of state for your job...as many manufacturing jobs were offered to go to the Southern states...or

How about this....have your jobs downsized....you are out of a job...period

How about this....your job is outsourced = the job was sent out of the country.

Wake up and be happy you keep your job! Millions of Americans aren’t so lucky. Look at California with millions of Americans who have lost their homes and many living in RV’s under freeway ramps.

..Thank God for what you have!" Oct 29, 18 8:07 PM

Southampton Town Board Receives Official SCWA Proposal To Manage Hampton Bays Water System

Watchoutnow968...where are your facts.....I had SWA water in Tuckahoe and my water pressure was great. I really think that the engineers have the training to compute the pressure, etc. and will handle the job.

Let’s let the experts do their job and see how that turns out.
" Oct 29, 18 8:16 PM


The alternative: Keep dirty water, as many residents have and have had dirty water since JUly 4!!!!! REally! That is a shame! Shame on H B Water for not notifiying residents of the cause and how the problem would be handled. Not to mention they were never informed of a projected date to have the water clean.
NOT ONE H B resident has had an official notice from H B Water regarding the DIRTY WATER!!! NOT ONE LETTER!!! NOT ONE COMMUNICATION ABOUT DIRTY WATER!!!! " Oct 29, 18 8:17 PM

Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman Announces Run For Suffolk County Comptroller This Fall

Jay has been the sole (only) voice and leading force in the HB Water situation. He deserves the credit for the solution which should be revealed soon. Jay is intelligent and skillful.
No politician will please all of the voters all of the time. That would be impossible.

Tensions Run High At First Public Meeting To Discuss SCWA Management Of Hampton Bays Water

Does anyone know if the employee paid back the scholarship fund? Pease reply here. " Dec 1, 18 4:27 AM

If the old lines are lined with asbestos....then that appears to be even more reason to bring on SCWA to develop a plan to change the pipes...does HB have a plan to do so? We dont know if they do and they aren’t telling us ANYTHING! H Bays Water has never sent us any information why the water is BLACK and stayed BLACK for months for many people. Local businesses are being hurt by the BLACK water. A local hotel had to send out their laundry due to BLACK water!! Lets’ get the experts here to run things. We need professional help and professional communication for the WATER that is essential for our health!" Dec 1, 18 4:31 AM

Why is this an issue of politics, who pays who, rates will go up....this is water that we drink and bathe in!! We are not talking about buying a Chevy or a BMW!!!

If. H Bays hasn’t been maintaining the system then it needs updated.

HBWD To Present Opposing Argument To SCWA Proposal To Manage Local Water Next Week

What is so difficult to understand HB Water employees and fans?

We need the intelligent public to go and fill that auditorium!! Stand up and hvae your voice heard! THis is OUR water system and the SILENT MAJORITY has to become a VOICE HEARD FOR OUR FUture HEALTH!!!" Dec 12, 18 8:05 PM

From the article above:

Currently, Hampton Bays residents who are customers of the water district who use 3,500 cubic feet of water, or 26,182 gallons, pay approximately $44.80, including usage fees—the average customer pays $132 annually through a property tax bill to the water district—and other charges. The same amount used by an SCWA customer costs roughly $46.72." Dec 12, 18 8:06 PM

Hampton Bays Water District Officials Speak Out Against SCWA Proposal To Manage Local Water

And what about the businesses that have extra costs due to the black water? DId they have compensation for their loss when they paid their water bill? Read on....

A lady attending the latest Water Meeting said that when she called HB Water in July about her black water,, “Keep your cleaning bills and deduct from your water bill.””
How nice! Did anyone else get that message? Answer is NO! Favoritism of customers!!!! Sounds like an audit is needed! Are they running a Private Club for their friends or treating the community as equals!!! " Dec 22, 18 8:41 PM

Suffolk County Water Authority Says Hampton Bays Water District's Iron And Manganese Levels Exceeded Limits Last Summer

Ok...when will the government officials that we have elected to protect us and our families.....be allowed to do just that....protect our health and the future health of our families...please! When can the DEC, Suffolk Health, NYS Health, Southampton Town....whichever government agency step in and take control of our health!!!! This madness has to stop!!!!

Because we have always done things this way....cannot be the motto of our lives anymore. WE HAVE TO HAVE COMPETENT AND TRAINED WATER PROFESSIONALS.

Our community and the worlds has changed over the past 30 years!!
WE HAVE TO CHANGE WITH THE DEMANDS OF THESE CHANGES!!

Watchdog , your words are worth repeating....

Readers: clip and paste these words on your Facebook pages

The ‘’locals’’ are not taking care of their neighbors.They first pour hazardous chemicals into our ground water and then it’s pumps it into our homes.This is not a deliberate chain of events but it does point out the danger of allowing poorly prepared people to run our fire and water departments.Our first responsible is to hand over our water management to the professionals at the Suffolk Water Authority and the State DEC to clean up chemical mess at the Fire Dept.A superfund site in the center of our village,Not good for our already tarnished image."

Supervisor Announces Plan To Freeze Tax Assessments For Two Years To Study Process

Go to the Southampton Schools websites and count the number of administrators. These positions have been boosted up to the admin level over the past years. What are the salaries for 13 Administrators? Do neighboring districts have 13 Administrators for a similar number of graduates? " May 8, 19 10:00 PM

A freeze sounds like a good idea. We should all thank Jay for his fresh approach to look for new solutions. And not to continue with the same ideas, same programs, etc because it is tradition. Times have changed and we must examine new methods, etc. Thank you Jay! " May 8, 19 10:02 PM
