Decentralized Wastewater for Communities

Communities can improve local water quality.

Peconic Green Growth will help communities in Eastern Suffolk County to restore sensitive environments by planning and developing designs for community wastewater systems that purify effluent to a higher quality. Wastewater from these systems can also be used for farm and landscaping irrigation, golf course maintenance, and toilet flushing. To select the pilot communities we will look at conditions that negatively impact water quality in the Sound and bays, such as the presence of cesspools, shallow depths to groundwater, small lots, flooding, and close proximity to surface water. A very important first step is a survey that will both provide needed information and let us know which neighborhoods are willing to act promptly to protect our marine environments. Currently we are looking for communities in the Long Island Sound watershed in the towns of Riverhead and Southold, which is being sponsored by the Long Island Sound Study, and communities in the Peconic Estuary in East Hampton, Riverhead, Shelter Island, Southampton, and Southold. Please take our survey. (Link to Survey Monkey) Any and all information is helpful to us even when you don’t know all the answers. Peconic Green Growth will be delighted to make a presentation to homeowners’ associations and other community based groups. Please contact us to schedule a presentation and discussion.
