For decades, the Great South Bay has been under assault of nitrogen overload which triggers algal blooms, such as Brown Tide, decimating marine life and affecting water quality. The largest contributor of nitrogen pollution to the Bay are outdated cesspools. Across Suffolk County there are some 380,000 homes and businesses that still rely on these outdated systems. There are several efforts underway to help address this issue.
Join us along with policy makers, environmental advocates, and clean water professionals, as Save The Great South Bay explores what initiatives are underway and/or planned to help reduce nitrogen pollution in the Bay at our next Speaker Series: Nitrogen, Brown Tide and the Great South Bay on Friday, May 5, 2023 from 8 AM – 10 AM at the View in Oakdale.
