A Conservation Agenda for Shelter Island Residents
Understanding our Aquifer, Resources, Environmental Threats
and What You Can Do.
The Town, through its Water Advisory Committee (WAC) and the United States Geological Survey (USGS), has recently inaugurated water quality testing at four test wells on the island, and the initial findings indicate high nitrate levels in the center of the island near the School. We immediately shared these results with School officials who indicate they also test their water quality regularly.
Residents in the Center may want to consider having their own wells tested for water quality as high nitrate levels affect the quality of drinking water.
The School, WAC and USGS continue to investigate the issue.
