Join the Fight to Protect Nassau's Drinking Water
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.
