LONG ISLAND – The Living with the Bay project broke ground in April of this year. Crews have been on site at Hempstead Lake State Park through the summer to begin preparing for the dam restoration at Hempstead Lake. Prep work on the Park’s Education and Resiliency Center has begun, and structural construction work is anticipated to begin in the coming weeks.
Further south in the Mill River watershed, the Environmental Assessments (EA) for the Long Beach Wastewater Consolidation project, the stormwater interventions, and the Greenway have been published. You can find updated timelines, budgets, and links to those EA documents here.
