East Hampton will issue a 20-year bond to pay for a $24.3 million project to connect 520 Wainscott homes to the public water supply, after private wells in the town were recently found to contain toxic chemicals. Town officials also voted unanimously on an agreement with the Suffolk County Water Authority, which will hire contractors for the project, Newsday reported. All homeowners in town will also pitch in to the project, with owners of properties worth more than $1.2 million paying up to $38 per year. Homeowners are also expected to pay for their hookups to the new water mains through taxes. The hookups could cost up to $6,000, but officials are trying to get grants to offset those new expenses. Roadwork Construction Corp. of Hampton Bays and Asplundh Construction Co. will try to complete the project by the end of the year. [Newsday]
