Sayville’s Suffolk County Times reported in Feb. 1937 that the WPA had begun work on four storm sewers in Blue Point, providing employment for 60 laborers.
The locations of the sewers are as follows:
1. From the intersection of Middle Road and Arthur Avenue to the intersection of Woodland and Blue Point Avenues, by way of Arthur and Woodland; a distance of about 0.3 miles.
2. From Brook Street just south of Montauk Highway to the highway and west to Purgatory Creek; about 0.1 miles.
3. From the intersection of Namkee Road and Maple Street to Winthrop Court and east to Stillman Creek; about 0.3 miles.
4. Along Park Street to Purgatory Creek
