Message from Asharoken Mayor Gregory D. Letica:
August 29, 2016
On August 12 I met with Town of Huntington Supervisor Frank Petrone to discuss what options
the Village and Town had to respond to the ACOE's insistence that the ASDRP have five public access points and
parking at each. As a result of this discussion we drafted a letter to Senator Chuck Schumer asking him to
contact the ACOE and determine if there is any way that they could modify their public access requirements
based on the public benefits of protecting Asharoken Avenue.
Click here to read the letter.
I will let you know what Senator Schumer's response is when it is received.

2016 Coastal Clean-Up: Join Us on September 24
Asharoken Village is preparing for our 7th annual Coastal Clean-up. The Village encourages anyone interested in our environment to come out and volunteer in collecting trash from surrounding beach shorelines. Organizations, businesses, residents, families and students, are all encouraged to participate in the cleanup which will take place on Saturday. September 24 from 9am-4pm at One Asharoken Avenue on the beach parking lot located adjacent to Village Hall.
The event will be ongoing throughout the day, offering all eco-conscious volunteers the opportunity to partake at hours convenient to their schedules. Supplies such as bags and gloves will be provided. Water and light refreshments are on hand. The Village sponsors the cleanup in conjunction with the Northeast chapter of the American Littoral Society, which is in its 31st year of leading beach cleanups across New York. In 2015 the Littoral Society recorded 7,723 Volunteers who collected 125,544 lbs. of debris along 250 miles of shore, filling up 4,715 bags of trash.
The New York cleanup is unique as volunteers are asked to fill out data cards, recording their finds. The data is sent to the Ocean Conservancy for analysis which helps to provide strategies to combat marine pollution, This is a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness of the trash in our waterways and its negative impact on our marine life. When you volunteer you become a solution to the problems of pollution. On the day of the cleanup, Mayor Greg Letica and the volunteers will hand out community service award certificates to all volunteers who may need the hours for school, scout or religious purposes. Volunteers will have suggested beaches for cleanup, some within walking distance and others a short drive. Rain date is Sunday, September 25. Dress comfortably and wear sunscreen, For signup info: visit asharoken.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
All volunteers are welcome. Show up and become an active solution to pollution!

UPDATE from SCWA: The Town of Huntington has informed us they plan to perform final restoration of the roadway before the end of the year.
August 5, 2016
The purpose of the water main replacement on Eaton's Neck Rd. in Asharoken was to replace an undersized 8" water main with a new 16" water main in order to bolster supply in Eaton's Neck. During times of hot summer weather and increased irrigation use, pressure at the end of the system in Eaton's Neck was sagging to unacceptable levels. This project was undertaken to move more water across the strip and bolster the area where residents were experiencing pressure loss during peak demand.
A temporary patch was put down on the roadway. A Suffolk County Water Authority (SCWA) Supervisor reviewed the work today and inspected it for any potholes or debris. The Supervisor reported the road to be in good shape, but said some of the debris near the valve box would be cleaned close to Ocean Avenue.
The entire roadway will be repaved by the Town of Huntington Highway Department. A target date for when that work will begin is currently being worked on. The SCWA will inform the Village as soon as the repaving schedule is confirmed.
Any questions, contact Jeffrey Szabo, Chief Executive Officer of the SCWA at (631) 563-0353.
Thank you and have a great weekend.
Mayor Greg Letica
Water Main Installation Status
The Suffolk County Water Authority installed a new 16" diameter water main in order to increase
pressure to Asharoken and Eaton's Neck homes and fire hydrants. The project began on July 12 for approximately 10 days.
A portion of Eaton's Neck Road was closed from the corner of Ocean Ave and Eaton's Neck Road to the
back entrance of Steers Ave.
At this point the installation of the new water main is 100% complete, no more
road closures will be occurring. The new pipe is not in service, the SCWA has to flush it out and take samples before
they can hook it up completely. The temporary road patch will remain until SCWA completes their final restoration of the
road, which could be late Fall.
