Mar 10, 2013
The latest grant for Lake Agawam is now officially approved - the Suffolk County Legislature passed Resolution 1009-2013 on March 5, 2013.
This award will provide $50,500 toward the cost of additional drainage structures to be installed at Bowden Square. This is a 50% matching grant with a total cost of $101,000.
Members of the Lake Agawam Conservation Association provided support letters for this grant application: David Bohnett, Mark Fichandler, Paul Travis, Chuck and Ellen Scarborough, Barbaralee and Carl Spielvogel, and Helene and Whitney Stevens. John Halsey of the Peconic Land Trust also provided a letter.
To date, grants supporting prior phases were:
- $140,000 from Suffolk County for Lola Prentice and Bowden Square drainage (Phase II)
- $100,000 from New York State for drainage on Hill Street (Phase I)
This brings the total funds awarded for Agawam to $290,500.
