Water is an important part of our environment in Nassau County. We are surrounded by ocean, bays, ponds, streams and inlets. Additionally, Nassau County sits just a few hundred feet above our drinking water aquifers. It is critical that we protect the quality of our aquifers from pollutants. The Nassau Legislature has created the Nassau County Water Resources Board to monitor Nassau’s groundwater resources. Nassau has also joined with Suffolk County to create the Long Island Commission for Aquifer Protection to address aquifer quality and quantity issues for all Long Islanders.
