The Long Island Power Authority is looking at ways to strengthen the power grid for the East End and, unfortunately, they are seriously considering installing new 60-foot-high power poles on a route from along David Whites Lane in Southampton through Scuttle Hole Road in Bridgehampton to the Sag Harbor Turnpike.
The power lines we have are currently the single largest focus of complaints about vista interruptions. Adding more and higher poles would be exactly the opposite of what the public wants.

Let your voices be heard at the public meeting LIPA has scheduled on August 21st at 6 PM at the Water Mill Community House located on the Montauk Highway at the light in Water Mill.
