Proposed Recipient: Incorporated Village of Patchogue
Address of Recipient: 14 Baker Street, Patchogue, NY  11772
Requested Amount: $9,400,000
Explanation and Purpose: The requested funding will be used to expand the Village of Patchogue Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) from 800,000 gallons per day (gpd) to 1,200,000 gpd. This is an appropriate use of taxpayer funds because the increased capacity will allow adjacent waterfront communities from Bayport to Bellport to connect to the Patchogue WWTP. The upgraded facility will serve to eliminate septic tank overflow which is polluting the Great South Bay, a federal waterway, thereby improving water quality. The septic overflow contains nitrogen, a nutrient that promotes algae growth which harms the ecosystem off the estuary.

Proposed Recipient: Incorporated Village of Bellport
Address of Recipient: 29 Bellport Lane, Bellport NY 11713
Requested Amount: $3,267,000
Explanation and Purpose: Waterfront infrastructure on the Great South Bay, also known as Bellport Bay, was badly damaged by Superstorm Sandy. The damage to certain facilities did not rise to the level of repair or replacement by FEMA at that time. However, due to the cascading effect of damage, these facilities are now in need of updating. This is an appropriate use of taxpayer funds because the Incorporated Village of Bellport owns, operates, and maintains two municipal marinas, both of which service first responder vessels, the Bellport Village/Fire Island Ferry, and Village residents and the general public.
