Cedar Creek Spared Great Neck’s Sewage

Resolving a seven-year tug-of-war over the best way to comply with state and federal environmental laws while dealing with several million gallons of sewage, Great Neck and its surrounding areas’ residents produce on a daily basis—in the most cost-efficient way—North Hempstead Supervisor Jon Kaiman and the Town Board unanimously approved a $60 million bond resolution Nov. 17 to upgrade an existing wastewater facility and decommission another.
