New York City is at it again. It seems every time we turn around it’s slyly trying to solve its problems on the backs of suburban taxpayers. Unfortunately it makes perfect political sense for them to try to push off the city’s problems and bills on people who don’t vote in the city. The latest grab – our water – and I’m not kidding.
New York City is planning to take 33 million gallons of water per day from Long Island's aquifers, which are the sole source of our drinking water, by reopening 52 shuttered wells in Queens whih have not been used for decades. Experts have raised concerns that the City's pumping will have a serious negative impact on Long Island's water supply. The City has not even performed a necessary environmental studey to determine what the impact of their plan would be for Nassau County residents.
Senator Martins has called on the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) to require New York City to do a full analysis of the environmental impacts of its plan BEFORE turning on the wells.
