[ARCHIVED] Now Accepting Applications for the 2nd Round of CPF Water Quality Improvement Projects


The Town of Southampton will accept applications for the second round of CPF Water Quality Improvement Projects through March 15, 2019.  Applicants should visit the Town website at to download the application. There is also a checklist with detailed narratives on required supporting information.

The Water Quality Advisory Committee will rank and score projects based on scoring criteria contained in the application materials.  The Committee expects to receive applications ranging from storm water and drainage improvements to wastewater treatment and aquatic habitat restoration projects.  The Town Board will hold public hearings for projects that exceed $50,000.00.  

The funding source, up to an estimated $10 million per year to help restore water quality, will come from 20% of the annual 2% CPF transfer tax on properties that was approved by voters.  

“This new and innovative use of CPF revenue will help broaden our solutions to the degradation of surface and groundwater throughout the Town in order to make real progress improving our water quality,” states Community Preservation Fund Program Manager Mary Wilson. 

The application program will likely be conducted on an annual or biannual basis, in addition to the Town issuing Requests for Proposals for specific water quality projects and the ongoing Innovative/Alternative septic rebate program for property owners.

“We are working from every angle to encourage innovation and share our experiences with other Towns on Long Island and beyond that struggle with the same issues,” explained Janice Scherer, Assistant Town Planning Director.
