Brookhaven Highway Department Completes Stormwater Project At Entrance to Village of Head of the Har

Town Seal

Stony Brook, NY – – Brookhaven Town Highway Superintendent Daniel P. Losquadro announced the recent completion of a stormwater project at the culvert on Rhododendron Drive in Stony Brook, just before the entrance to the Village of Head of the Harbor.

Following a pipe collapse, Rhododendron Drive was experiencing an erosion and flooding issue during heavy rainstorms. In addition, the roadway often saw runoff from the spring-fed wetland that crosses under Rhododendron Drive.

The Brookhaven Highway Department replaced the damaged pipe, installed new gabion baskets on each side of Rhododendron Drive to eliminate erosion, extended the curb, and installed a new drain to capture sediment.

The total cost for this project was approximately $30,000.

“We were happy to partner with the Village of Head of the Harbor to complete this stormwater project,” said Superintendent Losquadro. “The project successfully eliminated the flooding experienced on Rhododendron Drive following a heavy rainstorm.

“Furthermore, it protects the environmentally-sensitive wetlands in the area,” said Village of Head of the Harbor Mayor Douglas Dahlgard. “This was a win-win for community members and the environment.”
