Color-Seal-250x250

Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman has issued an emergency order effective October 10, 2019 due to severe erosion and the potential of coastal flooding along the eastern end of Dune Road in Hampton Bays. The section of greatest concern is east of the Ponquogue Bridge and opposite the Shinnecock Commercial Fishing Dock.  

The Supervisor’s declaration indicates an emergency exists or likely will exist and allows the closing of streets and other measures as deemed necessary.    

The emergency declaration allows the Town to accelerate any required coordination with the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation to move sand and rebuild the dune.  It also allows the Town to request assistance from the Suffolk County Department of Public Works to bring in heavy equipment to reconstruct the dune, if necessary.
