Riverhead Town is abandoning its plans to create an energy park at the Enterprise Park in Calverton as it looks to sell 633 acres it owns on the property to a private developer.

In 2014, the Town Board agreed to set aside 94 acres on the site’s southwest corner as land it could rent to energy-generating facilities.

The U.S. Geological Survey has proposed a one-year well monitoring study for the Town of Riverhead to determine where saltwater intrusion has occurred.

“Nobody really has a clear understanding of what the saltwater interface looks like,” Supervisor Sean Walter said at last Thursday’s work session.

Riverhead Town paperless

In an effort to save paper and money on printing costs, Riverhead Town Board members are now using laptops to review agendas and resolutions.

During last Thursday’s work session, each board member, along with Town Clerk Diane Wilhelm, received a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 computer, which also functions as a tablet and features a touchscreen and detachable keyboard.
