Meeting SUMMARY - January 22, 2019
Thank you to our presenter this month, Sarah Meyland, MS, JD, Associate Professor at NYIT, whose presentation on ‘Water for Long Island’ was well organized and informative. Our ground water is a finite resource, as is most everything else these days, and needs to be managed and conserved. In addition she discussed the plumes of pollutants like the Grumman/Navy plume in Bethpage which is working its way toward Massapequa Creek. Sadly there seems to be no authorities who are willing to figure out what to do with it. Although there are some remediation strategies being considered, none of them are simple. We all need to look at our water bill and see how much we are using, then try to conserve; to encourage our elected officials and government agencies to start focusing on the plumes, withdrawal, encroachment, and our long term water resources in general. Sarah's idea of a separate water commission for Long Island seems to make sense.
Thanks again, Sarah, for your time and expertise!
