                                    Road Paving – Barkers Point Road

 (Between Cedar Lane and Plum Beach Point Road)

                                                                               September 12, 2017 

Dear Resident:

 On Wednesday September 13, 2017, the paving operation will begin on Barkers Point Road.  The paving should be completed in 4 – 6 hours if everything goes as planned.  There will be traffic delays during this construction period due to the amount of equipment required and lane closures.  Please limit your trips in and out as much as possible.  One lane will be open to residents only, but you will experience delays.  School buses will be allowed through.

 Please contact your landscape company and construction company to change their schedules to avoid these streets.  Landscape, construction, delivery, and garbage trucks will not be allowed access during the paving process.       

 You should leave plenty of extra time to reach your destination.  Also, please slow down for the safety of everyone involved.     

Special Note:  Please do not walk or run on these streets during the paving process.  Do not walk dogs or ride bicycles.  The asphalt is extremely hot. 

 Thank you for your patience and support during the final stages of this project.  If you have questions, you can call Brian Gunderson 883-3491.

Water Department Memorandum

 

August 30, 2017

Dear Resident:

On Tuesday, September 5th, the Port Washington Water District will begin demolishing the Beacon Hill Tank, which is adjacent to the Village’s South Road Tank.  As a courtesy, and with the approval of the Board of Trustees, the Village has agreed to allow Port Washington’s booster pumps to operate on the South Road tank level.  This means that the South Road Tank will be shared by the Sands Point Water Department and the PW Water District for several months until the replacement tank has been constructed.

In 1998, the Village of Sands Point carried out an elevated storage tank rehabilitation project for the South Road Tank.  At that time, the Port Washington Water District allowed the Village to operate its wells using the Beacon Hill Tank. There is a long history of cooperation between the water departments.

There are some ways you can help reduce strain on the water system during the next months.  If you would reduce the amount of water used for irrigation purposes, it would make the tank replacement process work better for everyone.  Unless there is an unseasonably warm and dry period in September, consider turning off your irrigation system manually for the remainder of the season. If you leave your system on, try cutting back 5 – 10 minutes per zone, which would be helpful. Reduced irrigation should not affect your grass or shrubs at this time of year.  Note that the PW Water District has asked its consumers to reduce water consumption as well. 

For those residents living near the tank, you might experience some discolored water from increased flows and changes in operating conditions.  This discoloration is from iron and is not a health hazard.  

Please call me at (516) 883-3491 if you have questions or require additional information.

Sincerely,

Brian J. Gunderson
