Suffolk County’s Public Works Committee decided not to connect the Southwest Sewer District to Heartland Town Square, a Brentwood development, according to Newsday. The project, which is spearheaded by developer Jerry Wolkoff, has 9,000 units, 3.2 million square feet in office space and 1 million square feet of retail space. Wolkoff said that if the project would die without an agreement with the sewer agency. Opponents said the project would deplete the groundwater aquifer and that the project should instead build its own sewage treatment plant. The rejected agreement could still find its way to the full Suffolk Legislature if 10 legislators choose to advance it out of committee. [Newsday]
