The North Massapequa Fire Department will be hosting the Annual 6th Battalion Parade and Drill on Saturday, Sept. 19, according to Chief Sean K. Abrams.

The Massapequa Preserve stream and drainage pond-dredging project took on another step recently. The laying of the underground piping connecting the water flow in the Massapequa Creek from Linden Street south to the Massapequa Lake at Merrick Road took place. The purpose of this part of the project is to pump water from the lake underground to a pumping system at Linden Street and back into the creek. The project when completed will keep water circulating and much cleaner. Water in the creek and drainage ponds will be kept cleaner from the filtration systems already in place at the catch basins that funneled roadways storm water into the preserves drainage ponds.
The BOT acted because it considers damages from flooding and erosion to be an increased problem for village residents and businesses.
