Water District Completes Petition Drive

Criticizes DEC response to groundwater situation For months, the Massapequa Water District has been in the forefront of the pressing issue of clean water on the South Shore of Long Island and especially as it relates to what it fears what water district officials call “highly toxic contaminated groundwater plume,” which they claim is emanating from the Navy Grumman site in Bethpage.

Recently, the water district completed its extensive petition drive, one that netted over 5,400 petitions. The petitions will be taken to Albany. The purpose, water district officials said, is to demand action by Governor Andrew Cuomo to take the necessary steps to have the polluters stop such plume.

“The Massapequa Water District has made its position clear and simple: the responsible parties must stop the plume from migrating further because the public does not want the toxic plume entering the districts’ water supply wells or impacting the Great South Bay,” water district officials stated in a release.
