Save the Sound has received three grants to monitor and prevent water pollution around the western Long Island Sound region. Grants from the Long Island Sound Futures Fund will make possible green infrastructure in Fairfield County and water quality program development in Westchester and Nassau counties, and a grant from the Westchester Community Foundation will support water quality monitoring.
“The western Sound faces special water pollution challenges: dense population, deteriorating pipes, and water flow patterns that mean pollution can stick around for a long time,” said Tracy Brown, director of Save the Sound’s Western Long Island Sound programs. “Support from the Westchester Community Foundation will let us continue tracking down sewage leaks in Westchester County’s streams, rivers, and harbors. And thanks to the Long Island Sound Futures Fund, we’ll be able to pilot common standards for citizen scientists doing similar work on Sound bays and harbors across the New York and Connecticut shores.”
