Four years after a special report called for action to deal with the increasing pollution of Reeves Bay in Flanders, the Southampton Town Board has approved $445,000 in bonds to begin work on stormwater control projects.

The money, which will be matched by a $445,000 grant from the Suffolk County’s quarter percent sales tax for water quality protection, allows the town and county to begin design work next year on drainage control systems to keep runoff from washing pollutants into Reeves Bay.

Major construction work is expected to take place in 2012 and 2013.
