Bellone signs legislation to continue restoration of North Patchogue lake

Posted: Updated:
NORTH PATCHOGUE -

Suffolk County is continuing efforts to revive a once thriving lake in North Patchogue.

The county executive signed legislation on Thursday for phase two of the Canaan Lake Restoration project.

It means $1.5 million will be used to clean the 24-acre lake and restore it to its previous recreational use.

As News 12 previously reported, the county started removing invasive aquatic plants from the water back in May.
