Protecting Our Water

What makes Suffolk great are our waterways, beaches and green spaces; and they are being decimated by nitrogen pollution. Yet again this year there are record levels of brown tide in the Great South Bay forcing beaches to be closed and killing the marine life. It is past the time to expand access to the South West sewer district and expand the nitrogen reduction program for existing septic systems. This will protect our drinking water and other water ways while at the same time creating high-paying, union jobs.
