The Great Neck Water Pollution Control District (GNWPCD) recently approved several new commercial and residential property connections to the district’s sewer collection system. The approvals come as a result of additional collection system capacity created by the recent plant upgrades.

“Property owners may request a connection irrespective of whether or not the property is located in the district,” said Commissioner Steve Reiter. “However, connections are more economically feasible if the property is located in a reasonable proximity to an existing collection system sewer line.”

Residents and businesses interested in connecting to the district system are encouraged to submit a written request to GNWPCD, headquarters at 236 East Shore Rd., Great Neck, NY 11023. Properties outside the GNWPCD boundary will be required to pay a capital equalization fee. The fee can be paid in a lump sum or as a variable annual fee, based on the properties’ assessed valuation and the district’s tax rate.

“The district carefully considers the viability of each property seeking a connection approval,” said District Commissioner Jerry Landsberg. “Additional approved connections will not impact service for existing property owners in any way.”

For additional information or questions regarding property connections to the GNWPCD collection system, contact the district office at 516-482-0238 or online at To view a map of the district’s service area, go to and click on “Service Area.”
