Top 7 reasons to stay informed on the Suffolk County Water Quality Crisis:

“70% of the nitrogen pollution in the Great South Bay comes from unsewered residential properties,” said  Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone.  “Suffolk County has 360,000 unsewered homes, which is more than the entire state of New Jersey.

1) Nitrogen is the number one threat to Suffolk County’s ground and surface waters.
2) Nitrogen is polluting our aquifers, our sole source of drinking water here on Long Island.
3) Nitrogen pollution of our waters threatens Suffolk County’s public health and safety.
4) Nitrogen is decimating our wetlands and marshes, killing off our last natural line of defense against storms like Superstorm Sandy.
5) Nitrogen is polluting our bays, rivers and waterways, killing off sea life and threatening the future recreational use of our world class beaches.
6) Polluted waters have already destroyed a once booming clamming industry and threatens to destroy our multi billion dollar tourist industry.
7) Poor water quality hinders our potential for future economic development throughout the county

I am not sure where the Hamptons falls in this potential water crisis, I know that Sag Harbor Village is offering a rebate and incentive program for 50%  for anyone with waterfront property in the village who upgrade their failing septic system. Rebates would be limited to 50 percent of the total cost of the work with total reimbursements, depending on the extent and type of work, capped at $2,500 to $6,000.  A typical septic system would cost approximately $5,000. The village is spending $50,000 on the program, and states if it is successful they will continue it next year. Hopefully all parties involved will come to an agreement and the program will be voted on at the next meeting in July 2014.

LIRR New Non-Stop Service to the Hamptons in 95 minutes

Greetings Hamptons Mouthpiece Readers LIRR will Operate First Non-Stop Service from Manhattan to Hamptons. The famous ‘Cannonball’ Will Run Express from Penn Station to Westhampton in 94 Minutes starting May 24th, 2013.


Starting Memorial Day weekend May 24, 2013 and blast off again every week through the Labor Day weekend  the LIRR will add a new non-stop Cannonball train from Penn Station to West Hampton in 94 minutes and make stops in Southampton, Bridgehampton, East Hampton, and Montauk . New Yorkers looking for the fastest and most direct way to the Hamptons on summer Friday afternoons will find their dream ride leaving Penn Station aboard the Long Island Rail Road’s re-launched ‘Cannonball’ train, which will depart from Manhattan for the first time in LIRR history.

That’s a one-seat, $27 ride from Midtown to Montauk with the reserved seating available for an extra charge – a reserved seat and wait staff to pamper you – for an extra charge.

The Cannonball will depart every Friday from Penn Station at 4:07 PM as a peak train, arriving in Westhampton by 5:41 PM, covering 76 miles in just one hour and 34 minutes. Then on Sunday evenings, the LIRR also will introduce the Cannonball (West), bringing customers back from Montauk to Penn Station, including a nonstop run from Westhampton to Jamaica and then on to Penn.

The new service is set to launch on Friday, May 24th, so for those of you who have long asked for a one-seat ride from Penn Station to the Hamptons and they have listened.  This move eliminates the need to change trains with baggage at Jamaica.”

On Sundays, the LIRR will introduce return Cannonball (West) service, leaving Montauk at 6:37 PM, East Hampton at 7:01 PM, Bridgehampton at 7:10 PM, Southampton at 7:20 PM, Hampton Bays at 7:31 PM and Westhampton at 7:39 PM. The train will then run express to Jamaica, arriving at 9:09 PM and complete its journey at Penn Station, arriving at 9:31 PM. Customers also will be able to reserve seats for an extra fee on the westbound Cannonball via the Hamptons Reserve service.

Customers are urged to consider buying roundtrip reserved tickets to ensure a seat on this popular train. To help achieve an on-time departure, Cannonball customers also are urged to arrive early at Penn Station and give themselves extra time to board. The LIRR reserves the right to restrict the number of standees on the Cannonball trains in order to maintain safety standards. Luggage also must be placed properly under seats or on overhead racks to avoid blocking doors, aisles and exits.

Customers can find new Montauk timetables at terminals and at stations along the branch as well as the MTA website or by calling 511, the New York State Travel Information Line and saying “LIRR” If you are deaf or hard of hearing, use your preferred relay service provider on the free 711 relay to reach the LIRR at 511.
