The Suffolk County Water Authority has identified hundreds of acres of land not needed for future water needs, and a parcel of land on Harrison Avenue in Miller Place is one of six properties now up for sale.
The SCWA recently sold the first property, one-acre residential lot formerly used as an observation well site in Lake Ronkonkoma. The lot sold for $241,000 on March 28.
The land in Miller Place is the smallest of the properties, a .8-acre parcel bordering Harrison, 15th Street and Tyler Avenue. The six properties total approximately 34 acres and are expected to bring in more than $5 million in revenues. Next week, the Authority will put on the market two surplus buildings, one in Great River and another in Southold.
“This has been a long and worthwhile process for the Authority,” said Chief Executive Officer Jeff Szabo. “A full property inventory and analysis had not been previously conducted. We are seeing the first benefits of that review with the sale of the Ronkonkoma parcel.”
