Water quality experts from the Suffolk County Water Authority presented and took questions from an audience of several dozen residents at SCWA’s latest WaterTalk education and outreach program, held at Kings Park High School on Thursday night.
WaterTalk forums focus on groundwater quality, water conservation and other relevant water topics. Most importantly, they give residents the chance to speak directly to SCWA water quality professionals.
The Kings Park program featured remarks from Suffolk Legislator Robert Trotta and presentations by SCWA Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey W. Szabo, Deputy Chief Executive Officer for Operations Joseph Pokorny, Laboratory Project Manager Fil Sinni and Director of Strategic Initiatives Tyrand Fuller.
“It’s always important to engage the public on water quality, but even more so now, with New York State prepared to set new water regulations imminently on 1,4-dioxane, PFOS and PFOA,” said Szabo. “These forums allow us to answer any questions residents may have about the impact of these regulations, what SCWA is doing prepare for them, and so many other key issues.”
