Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton Announces Crescent Beach Water Quality Study

(MINEOLA, NY) - Leg. DeRiggi-Whitton is excited to announce that the Nassau County Department of Public Works (DPW) has commissioned a study to look at conducting a site-specific groundwater assessment and stream sampling program for the Crescent Beach area.  
 
The study will be directed toward the Crescent Beach area to determine if ‘sewering’ alone will solve the water quality issues at Crescent Beach.  The study will also look at the water quality of the ground water and the storm water runoff in addition to any septic impacts.
 
According to Ken Arnold, Director of Nassau County Department of Public Works, “Once the results of the study are determined, the DPW can do a focused assessment of the area to improve Crescent Beach.” 
 
The proposal is to conduct a site-specific ground water assessment and stream sampling program for the Crescent Beach area as requested by the Nassau County Department of Public Works.  The service provider, Clean Globe for well drilling and Long Island Laboratories Inc, for sample analysis, are approved to perform the referenced services.
 
Delia is very encouraged that this study has been commissioned and we can look forward to Crescent Beach one-day reopening for public use. 
 
Sewer and septic system improvements will hopefully allow the opening of Crescent Beach one day, so it can again become a real asset to the City of Glen Cove.
