Downtown Riverhead is seeing 27 superstorm Sandy-damaged power and water stations replaced along the riverfront boardwalk.

The units were deemed inoperable after high waters from the Peconic River corroded the wires, workers said.

The replacement of the power stations will cost about $20,500, engineering department officials said. The town is hoping to get reimbursed, at least in part, from FEMA for the expense.

Town officials met with FEMA about a month ago and gave them a preliminary list of town properties which were damaged, officials said.
