Report: New Construction Plagued by Flooding in Port Jefferson Station

Newsday watchdog reports on the problems of some residents in their new homes.

Newsday's Community Watchdog columnist Judy Cartwright wrote a story recently about a new Port Jefferson Station neighborhood that has had its share of weather woes over the past year.

Richard Cunzo moved into a new construction on Evergreen Avenue last year and a few months later his problems started.

Cartwright reported:

On a street of new homes in Port Jefferson Station, the thrill of the new was short-lived. Richard Cunzo arrived in December and, within a few months, he was on the phone with the developer and Brookhaven Town to report that rain had collected in the roadway and risen so high that it flooded two of the family's cars parked on the street. The damage toll that day: Several hundred dollars for repairs, including a new alternator.
